Jason Abrams, a Cheltenham native, has seen the trajectory of Yorktown Plaza ebb and flow over the past decade.
A partner at Abrams Realty and Development, LLC, a commercial real estate company which oversees the Plaza, Jason is happy to say that things are finally trending upward.
“The pandemic wasn’t very kind to the Plaza. We lost a number of stores,” he said. “Over the last year, we’ve been able to lease it back up, and it’s now 100% occupied probably for the first time in a decade.”
The 3,000 sf Yorktown Plaza currently features a variety of stores, including the new Utopia Beauty Bar, Skate the Foundry, and a catering company that will be taking over the former JJ’s Hot Chicken space.
“Yorktown is very important to the community. It’s where I grew up, and we hope people come out and support all the new stores that are open,” Jason said. “Hopefully we’ll have a new coffee house, too. There will be plenty of space for everybody.”
The Plaza is also in the early stages of construction for a forthcoming Tous les Jours, a French-Asian bakery under franchisee Bowen Zheng.
The Court at Cottman, one of Abrams Realty’s recently completed projects, features a Jollibee, a Starbucks, a Giant, and a Planet Fitness, among other names.
