Springfield Town Center
6500 Springfield Mall
Since January 2015, another 30 shops and restaurants occupying 87,000 square-feet have joined the 1.35 million square-foot retail space of Springfield Town Center, according to owner Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust. Some of the newest tenants include Nordstrom Rack, Francesca’s, Finish Line, New York and Co., Wood Ranch BBQ and Grill and Dave and Buster’s, which opened Dec. 21, 2015. The renovated shopping destination reopened in October 2014 after years of decline as the Springfield Mall. Later stages of redevelopment planning for the area include residential, office and hotel space. But their execution will be dictated by market performance of the Springfield Town Center market. A release from PREIT said another 73,000 square-feet of space is already committed for 2016.
