Former Department Store Reimagined as New Regional Medical Magnet
July 22, 2020 [Bensalem, PA] – Brookfield Properties has recently launched redevelopment plans that, when complete, will finalize the transformation of the former Neshaminy Mall Sears anchor into a premier healthcare destination. The Colliers team of Matthew Shanahan and Ina Sargen have been named exclusive leasing agents for the new medical opportunity.

Two years ago, Sears announced it would be closing its Neshaminy Mall location as part of a plan to liquidate 142 stores nationwide.
Today, the now-vacant Sears space is being positioned as an innovative medical office opportunity by which regional medical health systems can serve the population-dense surrounding region from a highly centralized, accessible and well-known location. Medical specific features of the site have been designed to include: clear vehicular access and proprietary parking for patient populations, a covered patient drop-off pavilion and a dedicated entrance and lobby.
“We believe this will be THE revitalizing new medical destination of the region - affording premier branding and visibility for regional health systems and access to a large untapped population of over a million that is currently underserved for medical services.” stated Matthew Shanahan, a Senior Managing Director with Colliers Healthcare Services.
Neshaminy Mall has long been considered a standout location of the region not only for the strong population demographics of Bucks County that retailers desire, but as an extremely accessible regional destination. Located just minutes from downtown Philadelphia at one of the busiest intersections on the PA Turnpike (I-276), this retail property is easily accessible from Interstate 95 and highly trafficked PA Route 1. This year saw a new Turnpike interchange completed that directly enhances the site’s regional connectivity to New Jersey. Notably, Neshaminy is served by both SEPTA regional rail and Amtrak.
Current Neshaminy Mall retailers Boscov's and AMC anchor a mix of specialty shops that include Barnes & Noble, Hollister Co., H&M, Aéropostale, The Children’s Place and others. The Neshaminy Mall Boscov’s is the number one store of their 50-store chain. Similarly, AMC Neshaminy 24 is one of the largest cinemas in the area, ranking as one of the top 30 theaters in North America for the chain.
