Wegmans set to open late Summer/early Fall 2009

The Wegmans supermarket that is being built as part of the new development near the intersection of 29 and 422 is scheduled to open in August or September of 2009. From what I have seen and read, the Wegmans will serve as the anchor of the Providence Town Center development, which logically would mean that the rest of the shops would start to open at around the same time, a cool two years after it was originally scheduled to open.

Thanks to reader mvd623 who mentioned the update to the Wegmans site over in the Forums area.

Neat. I wonder if that will open before or after the one under construction below the Wawa in Great Valley.

Wow. The original date was spring 2008. At least it will get done. I drove through there the other day, I had no idea how much open land is there! I assume there will be more development and maybe even condos or somethign along with the shopping center.

I'm surprised it will take that long to finish up. The stores are being constructed now and a good amount of progress has been made already. But the roads there seem to be adequate enough to handle the additional traffic. As for the similar shopping center being built near the Wawa in Gret Valley ... who knows. They should expand Matthews Road and throw at least two more lanes there. That place is going to have residential areas too for apartments and condos.

Here's a link to a leasing plan for the Providence Town Center project. Keep in mind that the document is over a year old. I'm sure there have been some changes in the last 12 months. The last I read (some time ago) there were plans to build a retirement community along Arcola Rd.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
