The new look proposed for the old Sears at Neshaminy Mall
It’s no secret that many of America’s malls are in need of some revitalizing care, but one in Bucks County, Pa., is readying itself to provide it.
Brookfield Properties has hired Colliers International to handle leasing efforts for the empty Sears store at its Neshaminy Mall in Bensalem, which is undergoing a complete renovation as a healthcare office building.
“We believe this will be the revitalizing new medical destination of the region,” said Matthew Shanahan, of Colliers Healthcare Services, who claimed that a local population of more than a million people were underserved for healthcare services.
Neshaminy Mall has long been a popular destination in the area. Highly visible at the interchange of I-95 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike outside of Philadelphia, it’s also accessible from the highly trafficked Route 1.
Boscov’s location at Neshaminy Mall is the top performer in its 50-store chain and AMC’s Neshaminy 24 is ranked as one of the top 30 theaters in North America, according to Colliers.
Medical-specific features of the site have been designed to include: clear vehicular access and proprietary parking for patient populations, a covered patient drop-off pavilion, and a dedicated entrance and lobby.
