The downtown mixed-use center, located directly off Old York Road in Chesterfield, is now more than 50 percent leased.
CHESTERFIELD, NJ – Renaissance Properties has announced that commercial opportunities are becoming more limited at The Shops at Old York Village in Chesterfield due to three new commercial leases.
This stunning new “downtown” mixed-use center consists of approximately 39,000 sq. ft. of retail/commercial space with two separate building locations, along with 34 residential apartments above. It represents the only significant commercial center in the Smart Growth community of Old York Village, which consists of over 1,100 households within walking or biking distance.
“In addition to the popular STEM Academy for Young Kids, 2022 has generated significant interest from new business operators eager to join this unique center,” said Robert Adinolfi, Chief Operating Officer at Renaissance Properties. “Fundaes Arcade & Ice Cream, Gervasio’s Italian Family Restaurant, along with Mikey Bagels have all chosen to make Chesterfield their new home and we are excited to have them service the growing demand of this award-winning community.”
Fundaes is a 7,000 square foot arcade featuring a full-service ice cream parlor. With the latest games along with classic favorites, it will offer fun for the whole family including unique birthday party experiences when it opens this fall.
Gervasio’s Italian Family Restaurant will offer traditional Italian cuisine prepared by a generational restauranteur with roots in the local area. Mikey Bagels will not only offer their popular, time-tested bagels and coffee but will feature a café to enjoy sips and bites on-site.
The two buildings comprising this architecturally impressive new center still have limited availabilities remaining for new business operators.
Ideally situated on the new Saddle Way boulevard, just down the street from the Chesterfield Elementary School, The Shops at Old York Village gives businesses the rare opportunity to situate their businesses on a new “main street” specifically designed to meet the needs of over 1,100 newer homes and also capitalize on the very limited retail offerings in the local area.
“Businesses seeking to distinguish themselves from the more common strip centers found along Routes 130 and 206, each less than two miles away, will find The Shops at Old York Village to be a unique and appealing alternative” said Adinolfi. The New Jersey Turnpike and Route 295 are also only a few minutes away, making this an accessible destination to a dense and desirable demographic both north and west of the center.
The Shops at Old York Village offers a traditional downtown feel highlighting both commercial space and new retail space, but with both the efficiencies and quality of new construction practices. Interesting storefronts that give the impression that the center was built over time along with ample parking and a host of thoughtful, aesthetic touches add to the appeal and truly make The Shops at Old York Village stand out in the local market.
