The institute, which was recently given a 33 acre estate and mansion in the township, wants to sell off more than 20 acres of the land to the group of five developers. The sale is intended to endow the Arthur Edwards Center for Molecular Medicine, which would be housed on the estate, but the sale is continginent upon the developers receiving permission to build the houses. Parker Wilson, the developers' lawyer, said yesterday that his clients would appeal the commissioners' decision to the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas. Wistar lawyer Martha Manning said the institute was disappointed with the commisioners' decision and supports the developers appeal. A decision on the appeal will probably not be rendered until the spring, Wilson said. -- Steven Ochs
