Phase II of Willow Grove Shopping Center breaks ground

Federal Realty Investment Trust recently broke ground for the second phase of construction at the Willow Grove Shopping Center, tentatively scheduled for completion in the summer of 2023.

The 211,000 square-foot shopping center will feature newly designed walkways, street level vibrancy, updated public amenities, outdoor dining, and a “pocket” plaza in conjunction with the completion of an 18,000 square-foot outparcel building.

“The second phase of the Willow Grove Shopping Center redevelopment is important for the community and will enhance the downtown environment established by the township buildings located directly across Park Avenue,” Mark Brennan, Vice President of Regional Development at Federal Realty, said. “By kicking off this construction, we are one step closer to providing Willow Grove residents with enhanced placemaking, great shopping options, and overall convenience.” 

The shopping center is home to tenants within the fashion, dining, health, and beauty industries, and will remain open during construction.

“We are confident that Willow Grove Shopping Center will remain a top retail destination in the area with revamped shopping, dining and exceptional amenities, and we are eager for the community to enjoy its offerings,” Matthew Candland, Willow Grove Township Manager, said.
