Wawa along Lincoln Highway gets green light from supervisors
The proposed Wawa along the Lincoln Highway has obtained approval from the Township of Falls Supervisory Board.
Supervisors granted preliminary and final land development for the 5,585 square foot Wawa with eight refueling points on an approximately 2 acre site at the Fairless Hills Mall at 500 Lincoln Highway at the corner of Arleans Avenue and the Lincoln Highway in the Township of Falls.
Wawa will demolish the existing building that houses Arosso, an Italian-style A Touch of Sicily restaurant, which LevittownNow.com confirmed will move to another location in the mall, to build their store and gas station.
Wawa had planned for a steering wheel window attached to the building, but those plans were scrapped, according to a township spokesperson.
With the new Wawa, the company plans to have a right-turn entrance along the Lincoln Highway, connections to the mall, and an entrance and exit along Arleans Avenue. They also agreed to a six-foot-wide sidewalk along the Lincoln Freeway and improvements for pedestrian safety at the intersection.
Last year, the Falls Township Supervisory Board approved the rezoning of the 2 acres where Wawa wants to build.
Wawa already operates 10 branches within five miles of Fairless Hills Mall.
Also at the meeting, supervisors voted 4-1 to approve the preliminary and final development of the land to Bumm Holdings Company LLC to demolish an existing structure on the property located at 140-A Old Oxford Valley Road and build a storage of 2,400 square foot building and parking in its place next to the Amazon warehouse on Cabot Boulevard on the border of Falls Township and Middletown Township.
