PREIT Begins Redevelopment Of Exton Square Mall

by Steve Lubetkin,
REIT says it has begun the first phase of the redevelopment of Exton Square Mall.  The company acquired the land parcel underlying the existing Kmart store, enabling demolition and construction of the new Whole Foods, set to open in 2017.  Demolition will begin in early April.

Additionally, PREIT recently executed a lease with Round 1 Entertainment that will bring bowling, billiards, ping pong and other games.  Construction is underway for an anticipated opening prior to the end of 2016.  The tenant will occupy 58,000 square feet and will be located in the lower level of the former JC Penney store.  This entertainment offering will broaden the property’s appeal, attracting families and extend visits to the mall.

Located in Chester County, which has the highest per capita income in Pennsylvania, the trade area is home to 525,000 residents.  The property has visibility from Routes 100 and 30 and is easily accessed via Route 201 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike with over 38 million cars passing by annually.

“We have looked forward to the opportunity to reposition this well-located property with incredible demographics,” says Joseph F. Coradino, CEO of PREIT.  “These new additions will act as catalysts to continue to improve the merchandise mix and drive sales and NOI at the property.”
