Might a Mixed-Use Site Be Afoot for the Former Don Guanella Village?
Will a mixed-use development rumored to be in the works for the former Don Guanella Village, a 200-acre property Goodman Properties acquired via a $47 million deal between Cardinal Crossing Realty Associates and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, include a Wegman’s?
Nah, we honestly can’t say for sure (although an earlier report prior to the deal being struck did mention that possibility), but here’s what Cardinal Crossings–the site’s future name–might have per a traffic study from earlier this year, reports the Daily Times’ Leslie Krowchenko:
Although drawings have not yet been submitted, the traffic study filed with the township earlier this year outlined the possibility of 120 single family homes, 230 townhouses, a 150-room hotel, 55,000-square foot multiplex movie theater, 80,000-square foot recreational community center, convenience store with a 16-pump fueling station, 150,000 square feet of office space and 690,000 square feet of retail space.
An official presentation of the plans “is not expected before May,” but Krowchenko adds that Goodman Properties’ Bruce Goodman intends for the project to be “the largest development in Delaware County in the last 20 years.”
