Binswanger Secures Two Leases for P.J. Whelihan’s in Broomall, PA & Hatfield, PA


Philadelphia, PA – June 13, 2022 – Binswanger, an innovator in commercial real estate since 1931, today announced that it has secured two leases for PJW Restaurant Group at the Lawrence Park shopping center off Sproul Road in Broomall, PA as well as at Hatfield Pointe shopping center off Forty Foot Road in Hatfield, PA. Both transactions were brokered through Binswanger’s Philadelphia office and led by Senior Vice Presidents and Partners, Jason Kramer, and Josh Haber. Federal Realty Investment Trust owns and manages the Lawrence Park center and CFC Properties owns and manages the Hatfield Pointe center.

At Lawrence Park, P.J. Whelihan’s will be joining other existing tenants in that center such as Home Goods, Acme, Barnes & Noble, and Main Line Health. “We believe P.J. Whelihan’s is a tremendous addition to not only the Lawrence Park Shopping Center but to Marple Township and the Delaware County community as a whole. It will finally give residents, workers, and visitors a place to go to grab food and a beer, watch a game, and enjoy time with others,” stated Binswanger’s Jason Kramer. This will be one of the first full-service restaurants and bars to open in Marple Township since the township became a wet town in 2019.

At Hatfield Pointe, P.J. Whelihan’s is taking over the former Via Marconi’s Pizza Pub and joins other existing tenants in that center that include Shop Rite, Lowe’s, and Wawa. “With much of the infrastructure already in place at this location, P.J. Whelihan’s has the ability to do renovations and open that location quickly which we believe will really invigorate the center and the Hatfield area,” stated Jason Kramer.

“This is a very exciting time for PJW Restaurant Group as they continue to expand their footprint all throughout the area,” stated Binswanger’s Josh Haber. Slated to open in the Summer of 2022 at Hatfield Pointe and Fall of 2022 at Lawrence Park, these exciting new locations for P.J. Whelihan’s mark just the beginning of the restaurant group’s impressive growth and expansion plans.
