The transformation of 17 acres in Dublin into a vibrant, mixed-use development continues. Natalie Kostelni updated readers in the Philadelphia Business Journal on the final preparations of the Dublin Town Center.
It’s a $26-million retail-residence-open space community. Nehemiah Development Co., itself a Dublin business, is currently working on a 15,000 sq.-ft. building that will hold 30 apartments and 7,500 sq. ft. of retail space — one of the final pieces of the project.
The strategic Dublin location, says Nehemiah CEO Rob Loughery, situates the visionary rehab in the “next frontier” of area revitalization.
The heart of the site is a former men’s clothing manufacturing plant that dates to the 1930s. It’s now The Square, fully leased with an office/retail mix of tenants.
A rehabbed gas station, also from the 1930s, has become a food court containing, among other dining options, a Neshaminy Creek Brewing Co. taproom.
Nearby is a Grand View Hospital outpatient center and a still-shuttered Dublin Diner. The latter space seeks a visionary purchaser to get it back on its feet as the area’s resurrection evolves.
