The SM-acre plot near the en­trance to the Lans­dale In­ter­change of the Penn­syl­va­nia Turn­pike, a con­struc­tion site since De­cem­ber 2M1M, will soon be­come a des­ti­na­tion.

Next month, the Towa­mencin Town Square will have res­i­dents, ac­cord­ing to Mark Ni­co­letti, vice pres­i­dent of the Philadel­phia Sub­ur­ban De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion, the King of Prus­sia com­pany de­vel­op­ing the par­cel in the Kulpsville sec­tion of the town­ship.

In June, 1MM of the 18M units un­der con­struc­tion in the Bridgeview apart­ment com­plex along Towa­mencin Av­enue will be avail­able for rent, ac­cord­ing to Ni­co­letti.

He said the avail­able lux­ury apart­ments will in­clude units in the main manor build­ing that will fea­ture D SRRO, fiWnHVV FHnWHU, yRJD stu­dio, movie the­ater and club room.

“The ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign of th­ese build­ings is clas­sic and time­less,” Ni­co­letti said.

Com­ple­tion of the re­main­ing 8M apart­ments is ex­pected by the end of the year, ac­cord­ing to the de­vel­oper.

A culi­nary arts in­sti­tute, to be uti­lized by the Mont­gomery County Com­mu­nity Col­lege, and a Mar­riott Court­yard Ho­tel near the in­ter­sec­tion of Sum­ney­town Pike and Towa­mencin Av­enue will be open to the pub­lic later this year, ac­cord­ing to Ni­co­letti.

“It’s very ex­cit­ing to see the hard work and col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween our com­pany and the town­ship,” said Ni­co­letti, who also praised the ef­forts of Joe Fer­rier, PSDC’s vice pres­i­dent of op­er­a­tions. “We’ve got a great team of de­sign­ers and con­trac­tors work­ing to­gether to build some­thing GHfinLnJ IRU 7RwDPHnFLn.”

The culi­nary arts cen­ter — which fronts Forty Foot ooad — has been com­pleted and will host a few sum­mer classes be­fore a full pro­gram launch in Au­gust, ac­cord­ing to Phil Nee­dles, the dean of busi­ness and en­tre­pre­neur­ial ini­tia­tives for MCCC.

He said a ded­i­ca­tion cer­e­mony has been ten­ta­tively planned for Aug. 2P, and that classes for culi­nary en­thu­si­asts will be­gin in lcto­ber.

“I’m thrilled and tremen­dously ex­cited about the op­por­tu­ni­ties this fa­cil­ity will present for the com­mu­nity and the stu­dents,” Nee­dles said.

The new ho­tel, which faces the turn­pike in­ter­change from its spot at in­ter­sec­tion of Sum­ney­town Pike and Towa­mencin Av­enue, is ap­prox­i­mately twothirds com­plete, ac­cord­ing to Ni­co­letti.

He said the 1P5-room ho­tel will fea­ture S,MMM square feet of ban­quet and con­fer­ence space as well as “an amaz­ing new restau­rant ev­ery­one in the com­mu­nity is go­ing to love.”

Ac­cord­ing to Ni­co­letti, the eatery known as The Porch — which will fea­ture in­door and out­door seat­ing — will be open to the pub­lic.
