EVESHAM TWP., N.J. (WPVI) --A shuttered shopping center in Burlington County is experiencing a retail rebirth and some major makeovers.
The Tri-Towne plaza in Evesham Township has been long vacant, but now officialy announced new additions are moving in.
On Tuesday the township announced a $25 million deal to bring it back to life.
Mayor Randy brown says they've been working on this project since he took office in 2007, calling it the centerpiece of redevelopment.
"The land you're standing on today, within 2 to 3 years should have a value of over 30 million dollars," said Mayor Brown.
Rick Birdoff, the owner of New York retail real estate firm RD Management, says in the next few years there will be more than 250 apartments and 2 restaurants along with other retail and entertainment options.
The township is also working to create a park and some green space behind the property to enhance the township across the board.
Demolition is already underway and they say signs of new life will be evident come the spring.
