AdVenture Development LLC is about to break ground on the fourth phase of the McCandless Crossing 1.2 million-square-foot mixed-use development in Pittsburgh’s suburban North Hills. According to the Pittsburgh Business Times, three new restaurants and a new store have committed to the town center portion of the approximately $100 million master plan.
The latest additions to the project include what would become the region’s first Carrabba’s Italian Grill, as well as a Bonefish Grill location, a Longhorn Steakhouse and home furnishings retailer Home Goods.
The town center’s key anchor tenant is Cinemark Holdings Inc. of Texas. The company’s 12-screen, all-digital cineplex and a Doodle Bugs! child-care center are slated to open towards the end of the month.
Designed by O’Brien Architects of Dallas, McCandless Crossing’s entertainment portion will also bring a mix of small shops, a high-end grocery store and 50 townhouses. Construction on this phase of AdVenture’s mixed-use plan is expected to be complete in 2014.
The McCandless Crossing’s completed phases include a Lowes Home Improvement store, an LA Fitness, a CVS pharmacy, an IHOP restaurant and others. The region’s first Hilton Home2 Suites, currently under construction, is also part of the new development. Upon completion, the hotel will be the first extended stay property in the North Hills. AdVenture Development is also planning to build about 80,000 square feet of office space and a second hotel on the rest of the 130-acre property at Duncan Avenue in McCandless Township.
