Plymouth Meeting Mall’s $96.6 million redevelopment brings a new level of excitement and energy through the addition of entertainment uses, dining and a destination grocery store. The project includes the Philadelphia region’s largest Whole Foods Market and Cafe with rooftop seating, adjoining a beautifully landscaped open-air plaza of shops featuring stylish new retailers, which connects the anchor to the mall. The plaza will have a lifestyle feel, created through textured concrete, large decorative planter boxes with seating areas, and dramatic lighting elements that help guide guests through the area into the mall. A 350-car parking garage is situated under the entire plaza area and includes a state-of-the-art people-moving system to bring guests from the garage into Whole Foods and the plaza shops.
On the other side of the mall, an eclectic mix of dining and entertainment destinations include P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), Redstone American Grill and Dave & Busters. The restaurants are connected by a new landscaped plaza, which mimics the feel of the retail plaza area. One special feature of the new restaurants is the addition of outside seating venues, set within lush landscaping, which provide a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy time with family, friends and co-workers. The restaurant plaza is located within a few feet of the mall’s entrance.
Upland Square is ideally situated in one of the fastest-growing regions in the suburban metropolitan area surrounding Philadelphia. Solid residential growth and improved and expanded roadways help draw 33,000 cars per day to the site.
