Philly-area retail giant, the King of Prussia Mall, is planning a “multimillion-dollar” upgrade on its plaza, according to a report from Philly.com.
The Simon Property Group Inc., who own the mall, which sits 20 miles outside of the city, announced the news Tuesday, saying they planned to start renovations that include new tiles and light fixtures, on the western part of the mall in April, according to the report. The renovations are expected to be completed by the beginning of the summer next year.
During the renovations, which will be done at night in order to not interfere with shopping, workers will replace existing tiles with lighter shade ones, instal glass handrails and upgrade the bathrooms, according to Philly.com.
The news comes on the heels of several renovations the King of Prussia area has seen in recent years. One of the largest has been the plan to develop the King of Prussia Rail Line, connecting the area to the Norristown High Speed Line (NHSL). That plan is still underway but in the latest development, the SEPTA board approved a route for the project that would cut down on time between King of Prussia and Philly.
