Ellis Preserve is a 210-acre master planned development located near the intersection of Route 252 (Newtown Road) and Route 3 (West Chester Pike) in the heart of Newtown Square, PA. This pedestrian-friendly, open air development is planned to include a mixture of office, retail and residential uses.
Upon construction of all phases of the project, the uses will include 465,000 s.f. of retail anchored by a 50,000 s.f. upscale grocery and movie theatre, 950,000 s.f. of existing office space with an additional 400,000 s.f. proposed, one full service hotel with ~200 rooms and one extended stay hotel with ~125 rooms, and over 400 residences, including apartments, townhomes and single family homes.
