WYOMISSING, Pa. - From the rubble, a new complex will rise.
Philadelphia-based Equus Capital Partners, which now owns the VF Outlet Center, being renamed "The Knitting Mills," has released a new rendering of the complex's $70-million redevelopment.
UGI Energy Services and Tower Health are getting workspace, and the VF Outlet store is in its new home across the parking lot. Officials said Tower Health recently moved into a building, and UGI's new headquarters in the outlet's former Blue Building should be done by next May.
Under construction now, where the Red Building stood until recently, is a parking lot for UGI Energy Services and Tower Health employees
On the other side of the parking lot, there are plans for a new Sly Fox Brewing location, which plans to open by the end of 2018, and a new variation of a Reading Terminal Market.
Officials said Sly Fox will share space with a high-end restaurant. Work on the Wawa, planned for the corner of North Park Road and Penn Avenue, adjacent to McDonald's, could start this month.
"Hopefully that will bring in more customers," said Jessica Nunez. "I work here, so hopefully it'll bring in more customers to the VF."
For long-time VF shoppers Sharon and Mike Pawlewicz, it's going to be an adjustment, but they said they're ready to see new life in this part of Wyomissing.
"I'm sorry to see the old buildings going because it's historic, obviously," said Sharon Pawlewicz.
"It's not going to be hard to find anything over here," said shopper Mike Pawlewicz, looking at the new renderings. "I'm always open to change. Change is inevitable."
A day after being told he's out as Reading's managing director, Glenn Steckman is firing back at his former boss, Mayor Wally Scott.Read More »
