More Than 600 "Upscale" Apartments Will Be Coming to the Oxford Valley Mall | Newtown News of Interest |

On Monday evening, the Middletown Township Board of Supervisors unanimously approved preliminary and final land development for the project that is seen as a cornerstone for potential redevelopment of one of the area’s largest shopping destination.

The plan approved by the supervisors green lights 614 modern apartments spread across two three- to four-story buildings that would each feature a parking garage for residents and a number of amenities, including green spaces, pools, and fitness centers.

The new apartment complex will be constructed in the old Boscov’s parking lot. Part of the long-closed store will be demolished to add open space and clear room for possible future retail development abutting the complex.

The developer, Main Line-based Cornerstone Tracy, plans to construct the complex in two phases. The first would include 391 apartments with a parking garage, and the second phase will add 223 apartments with a second parking garage.

Dave Della Porta, a co-owner of developer Cornerstone Tracy, said the development will add about a mile of sidewalks to interconnect the development to the mall and surrounding area. He also touted the development will add 8 acres of green space, including a large central green area for residents and the public.

Della Porta said the plan would create “a first-rate, new, modern apartment community.”
