Radnor Property Group was the owner and developer of this urban infill redevelopment project resulting in the conversion of two blighted historic tobacco warehouses into commercial space. This was a two-phased project totaling 42,000 square ft. It is located in a residential neighborhood adjacent to Franklin & Marshall’s campus.

Phase I restored a 34,000 square foot, two-story brick building and is leased on a long-term basis to a community child care center and Albright care services, an adult daycare provider. Phase II added an 8,000 square foot single-story retail building. Construction began in 2007 and was completed in 2008. This partnership with Franklin & Marshall succeeded a large-scale land development project with the university involving the successful procurement of Brownfields grants.
