Stoltz on Montchanin development

Greenville, Del. —
Our proposal for an office building at 20 Montchanin Road will come before the New Castle County Land Use on October 7. As we have been meeting with neighbors of the site about the project, we have learned that there is some misunderstanding about the proposal.
We are proposing a separate two-story, 36,501 square foot office building off Montchanin Road in the office park that once housed Columbia Gas and MBNA. The proposed building would be set back 40 feet from Montchanin Road, which complies with New Castle County code requirements. It will be located immediately to the left of the existing entrance drive to the property. We are not proposing a new entrance drive and the building is not located so as to create a new entrance opposite Old Church Road. Further, the building will not sit at the intersection of Montchanin Road (Rt. 100) and Rt. 141 as the Department of Transportation owns about 15 acres of land between our site and Rt. 141 that was acquired for future right of way some time ago.
The addition of a separate building on the site requires that Stoltz request an amendment of the existing deed restrictions that are in effect.
The square footage proposed can be built on the property without amending the restrictions. However, for a number of reasons, we do not believe that to be the best use of the property. In requesting an amendment to the deed restrictions, we are following the specific process set forth in those restrictions and not circumventing any approvals as has been suggested by some members of the community.
A copy of the site plan for the building is available at www.stoltzusa.com. We hope residents will view the plan or call us at 610-667-5800 with questions.
