After several years of relative inactivity, it appears as if the White Clay Point Town Center project along Route 41 in New Garden Township is about to move forward again.

An amended land-development plan for the mixed-use, village-style town center has been submitted to the township by PREIT (Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust), the developer of the project.

Doug Grayson, the Executive Vice President of Development for PREIT, characterized the changes as very minor. The overall scope of the project remains unchanged from when the developer and the township reached a settlement agreement that resolved various issues relating to the project in 2007.

“The changes on this amended plan are related to a couple of the buildings,” Grayson explained, adding that the modifications are being made to suit the needs of specific tenants.

If the details of the amended land-development plan can be resolved quickly, it’s possible that preliminary work on the project site can begin by the end of this year.

The town center is the focal point of the project, but there will also be a multi-tenant retail center, a convenience store, and an age-restricted residential community.

PREIT, headquartered in Philadelphia, operates 49 retail properties, including 38 shopping malls, 8 town centers, and 3 development properties.
