Sheffield Furniture & Interiors has been a Malvern Borough mainstay for a long time. But this is not the view most of us see traveling up and down King.
This is what residential neighborhoods behind them and across the train tracks see. Not a particularly lovely design is it ? Sort of an abomination isn’t it?
Why can’t they paint it every few years with anti- graffiti paint? Sherwin-Williams actually makes an anti-graffiti coating that does this that can go over painted walls.
Graffiti is everywhere and I think it would be nice if Malvern Borough encouraged businesses with graffiti to clean up. And what if a mural went on that wall and was covered with that anti graffiti coating? Wouldn’t that look cool?
And the rear of Eastside Flats shows the cheapness in that project. Eastside Flats is just that: flat. Only the facade has any sort of detail. The side and rear of Eastside Flats looks like a large looming cheap shore motel.
Malvern Borough should also see if Amtrak and / or SEPTA have any beautification monies ever that could help defray the cost of graffiti removal, anti- graffiti , and even help fund murals and re-painting of these track and neighborhood facing walls.
Dear Developer(s) and East Whiteland Township,
Not to put too fine a point on it but there is ZERO preservation or restoration of the actual Linden Hall going on. All that is going on is construction of three (?) story stick frame slap dash but will be pricey townhouses.
If the developer is going to bail on promised restoration of Linden Hall and it was a condition of approval are there consequences for a continuing deterioration of this historic structure? Is the East Whiteland Historical Commission doing anything? Is anyone doing anything?
When development plans get approved don’t developers have to put up some kind of money that’s held in escrow by townships? How much if so is the amount for this project? And if the developer welches on the restoration of the actual Linden Hall, will those funds be withheld? Would it be enough to restore Linden Hall at all?
Inquiring minds would love to know.
