What Should Go Into the Forsythe Market Place at Nevillewood?

A couple of restaurants, including Aiden's Irish Pub, didn’t last long and the complex is still in search of an anchor tenant to fill the void.

The just below the exclusive Nevillewood neighborhood Collier Township doesn’t have a lot of traffic in it anymore.

A couple of restaurants didn’t last long and the complex is still in search of an anchor tenant to fill the void.

Most recently, but closed in Summer 2011 after being open for less than a year. Before that, there was a fine dining restaurant that never seemed to gain traction at the lucrative location on Forsythe Road below Nevillewood.

So we’re asking our readers what you want to see go there? It can be anything from a restaurant to a new small business.

No idea...The market is so out-of-the-way for most of the community. They need signage on Route 50 to garner more attention. In the mean time, it might be a great place for a healthcare office of some sort.

Loved Abondaza's! It was there for several years! Maybe a similar, upscale meeting place/resturant.

A Panera Bread, or big chain like that might do well. It is such a pain to get in and out of that lot, though.

Was Abondaza's the fine dining restaurant? I think it closed before I started covering this area. Never even knew it existed until then. That plaza is off the beaten patch so I wonder how many other people know about it.

Pandolfo's was the fine dining restaurant. It was there for several years until the owners moved away. It was very popular. Something similar would do well, even though the location is out of the way. NO chains please!

The owner's didn't move away I know them. They closed due to lack of business.

I think the only people that would really use that little plaza would be those in Nevillewood. Otherwise it's off the beaten path like Mike said. Maybe a good sandwich shop would do well there. Or a spa, high end hair salon.

I worked in a place after college that did bagels and such for breakfast and dine in carryout and delivery for lunch and the had a full time chef who made prepared homestyle meals that could be reheated at home for the crowd coming home from work. Always amazed at the buisness we did. A place like that would probably work well there. A lot of people pass thru that intersection. Good sandwiches at lunch would be good for the area. People picking up kids from school would pass by and grab dinner items as well. But if you price it too high you'll lose a majority of the people cruising thru.

I liked it when the original owner had the place. It was a nice deli with Boarshead meats and old time candy. They had original food items that you can't find in most stores. They would make hot and cold sandwiches and had different salads. It was the best. Next to it was a gift shop that always had something unique! As for just Nevillewood people, no. There is alot of construction going on at Newbury, so you would also get the construction workers that don't have to leave the hill to run down to one of the fast food shops. Also, anyone taking their children to any CV practices could run there and pick up lunchmeats and such while they wait. A simple little deli would be awesome!!!
