The proposed Wegmans in Lower Makefield Township (Bucks County), PA is gaining steam, as the township’s planning commission voted unanimously to recommend land development approval late last month. The mixed-use development will now go before the township’s board of supervisors for a final vote.
The proposed project includes a 100,000 square foot Wegmans, 200 luxury apartments, a clubhouse, and a retail village with a pharmacy, bank and several restaurants and retail stores. It will be built on 37 acres between the north and south campuses of the Makefield Crossing Corporate Center, and across from Shady Brook Farm. Last September the board of supervisors approved a mixed use overlay district for the property, a zoning designation that allows a mix of commercial and residential uses, and likely paved the way for final approval.
Developers are planning extensive landscaping, wide sidewalks, pedestrian plazas, and the creation of a pedestrian link to historic Edgewood Village via a walkway and bike path over Route 295. They also plan to preserve an historic farmhouse and barn, and make them focal points of the commercial village.
Giant and McCaffrey’s, both in Yardley, are less than a mile from the site.
