Work Begins in Fall at River’s Edge Residential Project at 46 N. Main St. in New Hope

“River’s Edge” at 46 N. Main St. in New Hope.

An investment group led by Scott Kelley hopes to begin converting the former Bucks County Trading Post site at 46 N. Main St. in New Hope into a four-unit condominium complex this fall.

Solebury resident and former local school board member Kelly is also a key player in Gateway to New Hope LLC’s planned conference center at the former Odette’s Restaurant site.

Dubbed “River’s Edge,” the development encompasses four high-end homes with access to the Delaware River. Residence “A” is the upper riverfront home, offering three bedrooms in a 3,200 square foot living space, and priced at $1.85 million. It features an open floor plan affording river views from the kitchen, dining room, and living rooms, and a gas fireplace, den/office, and large deck overlooking the river. The master suite also has a private balcony with river views.

The River’s Edge residences also come with two off-street parking spaces, along with storage in the gated garage, and can be accessed by elevator or stairs. Nicole Curran of Addison Wolfe is the listing agent.

Past owners of the building formerly occupied by Bucks County Trading Post at 46 N. Main St. had a tough time finding a development formula that was acceptable to New Hope’s Borough Council and its advisory committees.

An opulent Italian Restaurant that appeared to meet all necessary requirements was previously turned down, as was a prior residential development proposal.

  • Looks awfully big for the narrow space that it will occupy. Do they need a variance for the side property lines? Seems like the neighboring properties will have ZERO privacy.

    Curious as to why the previous owner’s proposal for residential development was turned down, and this one is acceptable? On the face of it, the Borough’s decision to reject, then accept, seems pretty arbitrary. Oh well — North Main St. is quickly becoming Millionaire’s Row.
