At its launching in 1986, Bromley at Burlington was heralded by its developers as "the start of something big" in Burlington County. Very big. At 540 acres, the development along Route 541 - Burlington-Mount Holly Road - on the border of Burlington and Westampton Townships was the most grandiose mixed-use project ever begun in the county. The plan called for 3.5 million square feet of office and light-industrial space; a 250,000-square-foot shopping center; a hotel; and a townhouse development for 2,000 residents.

Once, it seemed that a new mall in town was the bee's knees. But today's consumers want more. They want large shopping centers with giant stores next to their malls. Shoppers, it seems, want "power centers" teeming with "big box" stores that house "category killers," - or large commercial developments with megastores and superstores, like Mount Laurel's East Gate Square Shopping Center next to the Moorestown Mall. Soon, Burlington Township and Westampton, booming townships on the northern end of Burlington County, will be getting a power center.

Like the checkout conveyor belts in the stores it has built, KoDe Development Associates was pushing out Rite Aids and Jamesways and Shop 'n Bags as fast as it could. KoDe, the Philadelphia developer of shopping centers, won awards for plunging into inner-city neighborhoods, and it opened Babe's Steakhouse, a $3 million restaurant with a moving cocktail lounge. "We were pretty high-flying," said James DePetris, a founder of KoDe. "Our philosophy a year ago was to do as many projects as we could get our hands on. We were what you would call a deal junkie.

After making the decision to enter the Philadelphia-area market, the next step for the folks at Target was finding the ideal location for their first store. Route 38, Cherry Hill, beat out the competition. Target is scheduled to make its debut in October as an anchor at the Hillview shopping center now under construction across from the Cherry Hill Mall on Route 38. "We looked at the potential growth of the area, the demographics, the transportation system, and certainly we looked at whether we thought we could be successful in the Cherry Hill area," said Carolyn Brookter, a spokeswoman for the Minnesota-based Dayton-Hudson Corp.

THINK YOUR boss is bad? Well he, or she, has nothing on Matt Shaner, owner of the AFL's Pittsburgh Power. On Saturday, Shaner got the team together for a pregame meal at an Olive Garden near Orlando. And then he fired everybody. Now let's be clear: Shaner had reason to drop the ax. The players were being asked by their union to strike before that night's season-opener against the Orlando Predators. The players association wanted the owners to give the players - most of whom are paid $400 a game - a $300 per game raise.

After years of delays, the first residents should move onto the former Garden State Park site by the end of the year, and a growing roster of tenants is lined up for the project to turn the racetrack into a $500 million mixed-use community, developers said yesterday. Presenting a picture of a "vibrant lifestyle center" to hundreds of members of the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey, those involved in the project expressed optimism that the transformation of the 223 acres of prime real estate would breathe new life into the region.

Imagine shopping in a store that tries to offer everything one ever wanted in electronics. Then imagine 15 such specialized stores - in office supplies, sporting goods and a list of other things that call to mind the words power center. That's what the Court at Oxford Valley, a 726,000-square-foot shopping center, will bring to the area near East Lincoln Highway and Oxford Valley Road. Across from the Oxford Valley Mall and Sesame Place, and a stone's throw from major transportation routes, the $60 million center - billed as the "biggest non-mall shopping center in the Delaware Valley" by the Goldenberg Group - will rise on a 94-acre tract that once was an impromptu dump.

Every workday for the last nine years, township resident Rich Wozniak left his family and drove as far as 40 miles to his job at a Lockheed Martin Corp. center. Starting this week, the company is bringing the center to him. "When we heard it was coming here, it was just a blessing," said Wozniak, a deputy director at Lockheed Martin's Communications and Power Center, now completing its first official week of operation at its new plant south of the Newtown Bypass. The shorter commute will be a common experience for the 1,400 employees who eventually will work at the $60 million plant, company officials said.

A Maryland-based development firm presented plans Monday night to the township Planning Commission for a 198,000- square-foot, 14-store shopping center. The center would be built across the street from the Yardley Corners subdivision at the southeast corner of Big Oak and Oxford Valley Roads. The Oxford Oaks complex would be anchored by a large grocery store and possibly a department store. Lower Makefield is now home to two back-to-back shopping centers just down the road at Stony Hill and Heacock Roads.

First, there was the Cherry Hill Mall. Opened in 1961, it was among the nation's first enclosed malls filled with downtown stores nestled in a suburban setting. It clearly established Route 38 in Cherry Hill as South Jersey's premier shopping district. Two years later, competition increased along the heavily traveled highway with the opening of the Moorestown Mall just three miles east. Fast forward almost four decades and the two overlapping trading areas become a real retail powerhouse with the opening of the Eastgate "power center" at the back of the Moorestown Mall in 1993 and the Hillview "power center" near the Cherry Hill Mall in 1997.

BABY, IT'S cold outside. So cold, in fact, that 60 PECO customers in Center City lost power yesterday, said Ben Armstrong, a spokesman for the utility company. The outage struck about 4:20 p.m. in the area around 4th and Market streets, Armstrong said. The exact cause was unknown, but officials believed it stemmed from an issue with PECO's underground network in that area. No injuries were reported during the outage, which lasted about three hours, Armstrong said. It was the only major one to hit the city during yesterday's deep freeze.

WASHINGTON - An economic calamity looming, President Obama on Friday signaled willingness to compromise with Republicans, declaring he was not "wedded to every detail" of his tax-and-spending approach to prevent deep and widespread pain in the new year. But he insisted his reelection gave him a mandate to raise taxes on wealthier Americans. "The majority of Americans agree with my approach," said Obama, brimming with apparent confidence in his first White House statement since securing a second term.

Almost to a man, NFL draft gurus agreed: Joe Flacco was blessed with a howitzer for an arm, but he was far from nimble-footed and would be easy prey for pass rushers. That assessment was the basis for any doubt about the quarterback prospect from Audubon High and the University of Delaware before last year's NFL draft. Brian Martin knew otherwise. Martin, 39, the hyperactive founder and CEO of Test Sports Clubs, knew they were wrong because he helped train Flacco for the 2008 NFL scouting combine.

For young Philadelphians who have gotten off track on their way to high school diplomas and jobs, the city's three E3Power Centers offer an alternative route. Managed by the Philadelphia Youth Network, and funded by the city Department of Human Services, the centers serve young people returning from placement in juvenile detention or who have dropped out of school. Since Jan. 1, 2006, the centers have served 1,338 youths. At the centers, these young people - who criminal-justice experts say are particularly vulnerable to violence or to committing violence - are tutored to improve their literacy skills and helped to return to school or earn a GED. They receive basic job training, as well as participate in subsidized internships, while also working on life skills.

It's almost 12:15 p.m., and the Rev. Alan Neale and the Rev. Meg Buerkel - or Alan and Meg, as they prefer to be called - are peering out the glass doors that open onto Rittenhouse Square. In a few minutes, they will start their service, and although there are just a few takers - a couple of lawyers, a bookseller, a court reporter, a onetime UPS worker stricken with Lou Gehrig's disease - this is one for which the clock, truly, is running. Yes, it's time for "Twenty Minutes With God," which sounds like a Stephen Colbert routine, but in fact is the 12:15 p.m. service held Tuesdays at the historic Church of the Holy Trinity.

Something was created this week in the British capital that could become the nucleus of a government that will succeed Saddam Hussein. The 65-to-75 person leadership committee formed here at a conference of Iraqi exile groups was the product of four days of bitter Iraqi argument. Its exact makeup - the relative numbers of Kurds, Iraqi Shiite and Sunni Arabs, independent intellectuals, military exiles, and minority Christians - is still disputed. Neither it, nor the conference, would have emerged from the chaos if not for the skillful, behind-the-scenes role of Zalmay Khalilzad, the Afghan-born White House emissary to Afghanistan - and to "free Iraqis.

When the power goes off repeatedly in the blazing heat of the summer, it can be more than just aggravating. That's what businesses and residences in a section of west Center City are discovering. Electricity has been going out sporadically in the area of Pine, Spruce and Waverly from 20th to 22nd streets. This week's increased heat hasn't helped matters, Peco Energy reported yesterday. One resident said she looked forward to going to work early to cool off because power was off in her home.
