Expansion project at Main Line's Suburban Square set to begin

Alison Burdo Digital Producer Philadelphia Business Journal
A $20 million expansion project planned for outdoor shopping mall Suburban Square in Ardmore is set to add another 4,000 square feet to the Trader Joe's location and add another 400 parking spaces to a nearby lot.

Construction on the supermarket and a new parking garage adjacent to the Urban Outfitters are set to begin next month, according to Main Line Media News.

The Trader Joe's location is currently about 8,000 square feet, and the rear addition will bring it over 12,000, the newspaper said. Construction of a 625-space, 4-level parking garage will cause a nearly year long closure of a surface lot, which accounts for about 200 spaces, Main Line Media News said.

Continuing the timeline, [Kimco Realty's Nina] Rogers said construction of the new retail/office building on Coulter Avenue, to be known as Station Row, will not begin until the parking garage is completed and open for operation. It will include 20,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor, with about 17,000 square feet of offices above.
This is just one of several projects expected to transform the Main Line community. After a years-long battle with neighbors, Dranoff Properties will move forward with construction of a mixed-use project, which will go up in a parking lot on Cricket Avenue that currently serves a strip of Lancaster Avenue businesses.

A YMCA on Montgomery Avenue has already been torn down, making way for a condominium complex.
