The Main Street shops and offices located in Southpointe Town Center in Cecil Township, Pa., have received a top honor from the NAIOP Pittsburgh Chapter. Developer and client Horizon Properties accepted the award during the NAIOP 22nd Annual Awards Banquet on Friday, March 6, 2015.

Southpointe Town Center is a mixed-use development located in Cecil Township, conveniently located just off Interstate 79. A master plan optimized development, minimized structured parking and created a central gathering place for the park’s tenants. This 39-acre mixed-use development includes office, retail, multi-family housing, restaurants, a limited-service hotel and a public plaza, all of which are integrated into a walkable, pedestrian-friendly design.

Main Street has a classic look and feel, with heated street walkways, plus retail and restaurants at the first-floor level. Notable tenants include Bowles Rice law firm, EdgeMarc Energy, Benchmark Wealth Management, Burleson LLP law firm and State Farm insurance.

R.A. Smith National provided civil engineering design including site layout, grading, utility design, storm water management, erosion control, and the design of an underground infiltration system for storm water management. Services also included the design for offsite utility extensions and roadway design in support of the Town Center project.

NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, is a leading organization for developers, professionals, owners and investors of retail, mixed-use, industrial and office real estate. NAIOP advances sustainable and responsible development that creates jobs and benefits the communities in which their members work and live.
