RVG Management and Development Co. has devised an alternative option for the development of Hershey Towne Square project along West Chocolate Avenue.
The Wormleysburg-based development company’s proposed plan includes the continued renovation of the former post office building for commercial offices and the addition of roughly 32,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space within three new commercial buildings. The plan also includes two outdoor plazas for both shoppers and residents to enjoy.
Different from the original plan is the updated vision for the parking lot, which now includes 144 fewer spaces than previously proposed. The new plan also eliminates the multi-story buildings and residential uses.
The new proposal cuts more than $12 million from the original $28 million proposed investment, and, despite the changes, RVG Management and Development Co. believes that the original schedule can still be met. This timeline puts the completed site deadline for spring 2018, with businesses and retailers opening in early summer 2018.
