McCandless Crossing is an open-air lifestyle center in McCandless, Pennsylvania, about 10 miles north of Pittsburgh. The $100 million development is currently under construction with a projected completion date of 2016.[1]

History[edit]

The mixed-use project opened partially in 2010 with the completion of the first phase, which includes a Lowe's Home Improvement store and smaller shops. As of 2013, phases two and three have been completed and include a Hilton Home2 hotel, an LA Fitness, and a day care center.[2]

The fourth phase, which includes a 250,000 square feet (23,000 m2) town center, started development in 2013 with the construction of three anchor stores: Dick's Sporting Goods, Cinemark Theatres, and HomeGoods. The project is expected to partially open in early 2014, with the opening of the three anchor stores, with the completion scheduled for autumn of 2014.[3] The fourth phase will also include 53 townhomes, developed by Ryan Homes.[4]

On January 30, 2014, it was announced that the work on McCandless Crossing would extend into 2016 due to harsh winter weather conditions delaying progress.[1]

Dick's Sporting Goods became the first completed business of phase four and opened on April 9, 2014, replacing the previous Shoppes at Northway location.[5] The Cinemark movie theater opened in September 2014, with various restaurants and retailers opening in July and August 2014.[6][7]

Development[edit]

The project is being developed by AdVenture Development, a development firm based in Selma, North Carolina. The project consists of four phases each occupying a section of the 130 acre site.[8] The first phase opened in 2010 with a Lowe's Home Improvement store, the second in 2011 with an LA Fitness, and the third in 2013 with a Hilton Home2 hotel.[2] The fourth phase is currently under construction and is expected to partially open in spring of 2014.[3]
