Coming Soon to Germantown… Chelten Plaza

 

(PHILADELPHIA, PA) – Pulaski Partners LP, owner and landlord of the property at Chelten and Pulaski Avenues in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, has announced plans for a major revitalization and redevelopment project.

 

The lot is currently home to an abandoned gas station as well as a Fresh Grocer supermarket that operates in a 40-year-old building.  The Fresh Grocer will no longer remain a tenant in the new shopping center, and will close its doors at this location permanently in late February.  However, complimentary shuttle service will be provided daily from the Chelten Ave location to The Fresh Grocer on Chew Ave at The Shoppes at La Salle, giving Fresh Grocer customers continued access to fresh and affordable foods.

 

Major revitalization and renovation plans include converting the old Fresh Grocer supermarket into a new retail space accommodating up to seven retail outlets.  The abandoned lot near the back of the existing property will be transformed into a ground-up, state of the art, 18,000 square foot Save-A-Lot food store, operated by Save Philly Stores.  The new shopping center will allow for retail tenants both of local and national calibers.  In total, over 125 local jobs will be created for Philadelphia residents.

 

The project is scheduled for completion in the Fall of 2011.  A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled to take place in late March.

 

Interested retailers are welcomed to contact Mike Murray of Metro Commercial at 610-260-2669.
