History[edit]

After nearly two years of serious discussions, proposals, and planning on the retail project previously known as "Patton Square", construction began on the 70-acre Colonnade at State College shopping center in the fall of 1999 with the goal to create one of the largest retail centers in the State College region at over 500,000 square feet.

Target, Wegmans, Dick's Sporting Goods, Michaels, Circuit City, and a 14-screen Carmike Cinemas were all set to be among the earliest tenants however, Carmike would be forced to back out due to its Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing in the summer of 2000 (they eventually came out of bankruptcy two years later). All of the other stores proceeded to open as scheduled although Circuit City would eventually close in 2009 due to the bankruptcy of that store chain.

While other newer, but smaller, shopping centers have opened or been approved for development nearby, ongoing plans for expansion of the Colonnade continue toward the 500,000+ sq. ft. goal with one of its more recent notable additions being a brand new 89,000 sq. ft. Kohl's in the fall of 2008.

Anchors[edit]

  • Kohl's – 88,925 square feet (8,261 m2)
  • Target – 126,917 square feet (11,791 m2)
  • Wegmans – 101,670 square feet (9,445 m2)
