A lot of dirt being moved in King of Prussia

by Natalie Kostelni-Staff Writer, Philadelphia Business Journal

There’s a bit of a building boom under way in Upper Merion, where pockets of construction dot the township from one end to the other.
“It’s unbelievable there’s so much construction going on,” saidEric T. Goldstein, executive director of the King of Prussia District. “I would like to see more on the commercial office sector but that’s not a King of Prussia problem.”
The projects range from office to retail, small to large. The ones Goldstein’s group is tracking include:
• 100,000-square-foot special care center for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia;
• 24,000-square-foot Container Store next to DeKalb Pike at The Court;
• 345,000-square-foot redeveloped Valley Forge Shopping Center at DeKalb Pike and Henderson Road that will be anchored by a 165,335-square-foot Target;
• Across from there, a Super Wawa totaling 6,000 square feet and a Chick-fil-A, totaling 4,800 square feet will open this fall where a PetSmart once stood;
• 7,150-square-foot tile showroom for Porcelanosa is under construction at the corner of DeKalb Pike and Long Road; and
• A gas station at 620 DeKalb Pike will be razed to make way for a 2,500-square-foot restaurant and 4,200-square-foot retail center.
