Lehigh County's Tilghman Square Shopping Center Breaks Ground on Third Outparcel, Already 100% Leased


It’s a world of unparalleled service and convenience at Larken Associates’ second largest commercial shopping center on the East Coast. Located in South Whitehall, PA, the Tilghman Square Shopping Center offers customers a one-stop shopping experience with its third outparcel slated for occupancy in October of 2017. Core Enterprises, the general contractor, broke ground on the 4,000 square foot expansion project this month. The additional retail space is already 100% leased to tenants All American Hearing, T-Mobile and Lehigh Valley’s first Duck Donuts.

“We are very excited to bring Duck Donuts’ unique concept to families and visitors in this growing and vibrant community,” said Rosanna Sowers, the owner of the new shop. “Its quality shopping and entertainment options make Tilghman Square a great location for this area’s first franchise.”

The shopping center underwent its first major overhaul with Larken Associates in 2009. Upgrades included cosmetic refinishing and new curbs, islands and crosswalks. Since then, two major outparcel expansions have been completed at Tilghman Square, first for Univest Bank in 2013, then for Moe’s Southwest Grill and Jamba Juice in 2015. Now, at more than 248,000 square feet of retail, medical and office space, Tilghman Square has everything customers could ask for in one convenient location.

“Years after purchasing the shopping center, Tilghman Square continues to be a vibrant destination due to the great demographics of the area,” said Victor Kelly, Executive Vice President of Larken Associates’ Commercial Division. “It’s an easily accessible shopping destination that satisfies the needs of the entire family.”

The professionally landscaped and managed shopping center sits on more than 35 acres of land in South Whitehall Township. It’s readily accessible and highly visible from Routes 22, 309, I-78 and I-476.

“Places like New Visions Theatres attract all age groups for entertainment,” Kelly said. “The variety of quality food options also adds to the popularity of Tilghman Square as that one-stop shop in Lehigh County.” The Square offers lessees, their shoppers and customers more than 1,300 parking spaces, 37 of which are ADA compliant, as well as eight Tesla charging stalls.

Several tenants renewed their leases with Larken Associates in 2017. Goodwill Fashions, Sherwin Williams and PNC Bank re-signed for more than 21,000 square feet combined, leaving just one opportunity for lease at 1,600 square feet of retail.

Current retail and restaurant tenants include Moe’s Southwest Grill, Red Robin, Wendy’s, PNC Bank, New Vision Theatres and Tiger Schulmann’s Karate. Anchor tenants include Staples, Planet Fitness, Grocery Outlet, Goodwill Fashions, Petco and Harbor Freight Tools.
