“Oliver Tyrone Pulver Corporation is a privately held commercial real estate development firm with a 40-year history of developing over 13 million square feet of first-class office buildings in major cities and suburbs.
By selecting the most desirable locations and developing the highest quality buildings, Oliver Tyrone Pulver has established a strong track record of successful projects providing highly desirable office space for tenants and high returns for equity partners.”
The plan that was approved: “The hotel’s on the right hand side and the hotel’s on the left hand side, but in-between the two structures was a parking structure. So in effect what we all would see when the project is finished was three structures. Since the project has been underway and it has been re-evaluated as is normally the course as the project proceeds, Dave Gibbons the engineer for the project… made a suggestion to Don and that is:
Would you consider moving some of the surface parking to the opposite side of the proposed office building.
This is just idle speculation:
The presentation concerning the changes in the plans for the hotel, office and restaurant took 8 minutes and 37 seconds. A fairly heated discussion over access to the City’s land on the other side of the Brandywine between Ed Simpson and Oliver Tyrone Pulver Corporation took 10 minutes and 28 seconds.
It’s good to secure access to the City’s property across the Brandywine but I think Don Pulver fully intends to see that it happens. It’s just that there was a lot of emotion generated over access to what most people think is going to be undeveloped open space parkland. Is access to a walking trail park worth losing the income from the hotel?
I believe the seventy five acres mentioned is the land Coatesville originally intended for the golf course.
I’m just wondering if all the time that the City of Coatesville was trying to make a golf course on those seventy five acres and there was a hue and cry to “Save the Saha Farm”, could some persons have had other intentions besides recreation for those seventy five acres?
Coatesville City Council member Ed Simpson, “Originally there was supposed to be an access for the City, a right of way access to the property on the other side of the Brandywine. Since you’re making all these revisions is there any way you could incorporate that into the final plan so that we know where the actual right of way will be?
