Developers are proposing two multi-unit apartment buildings on an empty lot behind the Wendy's and Arby's on East Market Street in Springettsbury Township.

It's one of two redevelopment projects the township supervisors are set to consider in the next couple of months. 

The second involves the demolition of the Taco Bell and Gyro X-Press near the intersection of East Market Street and Memory Lane. 

That plan calls for the construction of a new Taco Bell at the same location, 2411 E. Market St., while the Gyro X-Press at 55 Memory Lane would make way for a two-unit retail building, township manager Ben Marchant said. 

The first proposal, submitted by NetSource LLC, would create two 16-unit apartment buildings on a grass lot behind the fast-food restaurants on the south side of the 2800 block of East Market Street, according to a public notice. 

The lot is located in the center of a block, making it "a little unique," Marchant said. The township board will hold a public hearing on that proposal at 6:30 p.m. on March 28. 

Plans for the development near the intersection of East Market Street and Memory Lane will be heard at a public hearing in April, he said. 

The parcels are near the former Hess gas station where a MOD Pizza is now being built as part of a $1.2 million redevelopment project by BLM Construction & Remodeling LLC of Dover Township, owner Barry Mease said. 

Mease said  he and his wife bought the property for $425,000.
