Wills Eye foresees more retail stores as more medical providers invade the malls

Metro Commercial’s Jim Savard comments in The Philadelphia Inquirer on health facilities entering retail shopping malls:

Moving into a mall also extends the reach of the health and wellness tenants and provides new customers, said James Savard, executive vice president of leasing at Metro Commercial.  Last year the firm did the leasing for Hamilton Crossings in Trexlertown, Pa., a 570,000-square-foot outdoor shopping center to include wellness tenants, a Whole Foods, Costco, restaurants, and a fitness center.

Other Metro projects include: turning an enclosed Granite Run Mall space into an outdoor space with a 14,000-square-foot branch of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia; the conversion of Cheltenham Mall featuring up to 45,000 square feet of wellness/medical space; and the conversion of Moorestown Commons Shopping Center in Moorestown to feature a medical facility.
