They fought the zoning, the density, the size, and the impact of the construction process. But four years after the battles began over 8200 Germantown Avenue, the immediate neighbors are mainly at peace with what they will soon have.

The $30 million project that includes a Fresh Market, additional retail space along the avenue, and 17 condominiums on the four floors above the stores are scheduled to be completed by March 2016.

The market may be open as soon as this fall.

The car dealership closed in 2008, and the building stood vacant for several years, turning into an eyesore on Chestnut Hill's commercial corridor. When Bowman Properties proposed a retail and residential complex on the site, nearby residents raised objections to the plans.

Matt McClure, Phil Korb, Tom Eshelman, Stephanie Zirpoli and Eileen Quigley represent Bowman Properties on this development.
