Jenkintown-based Goodman Properties has won the bid to develop a 200-acre-plus parcel on Sproul Road in Marple Township, property owned by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia that backs up to Cardinal O'Hara High School.
The development could consist of as many as 300 houses and 800,000 to 1,000,000 square feet of commercial space, including a Wegman's supermarket, said real estate brokers familiar with the deal.
"All I can say is we're very excited to be selected as developer," Bruce Goodman, owner of Goodman Properties, said Friday. "Other than that, I can't comment at this time."
He would not say how much the deal was worth. Competing developers said the winning bid totaled $44 million for the property at 1971 Sproul Rd. Jeff Cohen of CBRE-Fameco was the broker.
