Ellis Preserve is a 210-acre master planned development located near the intersection of Route 252 (Newtown Road) and Route 3 (West Chester Pike) in the heart of Newtown Square, PA. This pedestrian-friendly, open air development is planned to include a mixture of office, retail and residential uses.

Upon construction of all phases of the project, the uses will include 465,000 s.f. of retail anchored by a 50,000 s.f. upscale grocery and movie theatre, 950,000 s.f. of existing office space with an additional 400,000 s.f. proposed, one full service hotel with ~200 rooms and one extended stay hotel with ~125 rooms, and over 400 residences, including apartments, townhomes and single family homes.

As part of the Master Planning for the project, the following short- and long-term roadway improvements were identified and designed by TPD:

  • Design of a bypass/relief route (constructed)
  • Design of a four-lane cross section on the northern leg of Clyde Lane (constructed)
  • Roadway widening and addition of turn/thru lanes along two major state Routes
  • Design of ADA pedestrian facilities
  • Design of new traffic signals and equipment, including corridor signal optimization

The next step in the process includes the final design of the third phase of the roadway improvements using a mix of private and public funding to provide roadway improvements that include a seven (7) lane cross-section on Route 3 through the busy and constrained Route 252 intersection. Future phases will include extending the limits of the seven-lane cross section to the
east and west of the current project limits.
