A developer is nearing completion on finalizing four leases for a new commercial/retail center in Forks Township.

After the recent openings of Trail Trimmers Salon, Bounce U Easton, gym tiME, and the Easton Hospital Health and Wellness Center, spaces at Park Plaza at Sullivan Trail are beginning to fill up.

An independently-owned pharmacy will occupy a space in February, and three other tenants are slated to open between January and March, said Park Plaza developer and owner Richard Bartolacci of Bethlehem.

"A lot of hard money went down," said Bartolacci. "We've been interviewing people to see what they have to offer, we've had a minimum of four people who have the same business."

Other potential tenants include a local vineyard, smoothie bar/hoagie shop, an ice cream shop, and restaurant. One tenant will have "a lot of entertainment involved," in excess of 10,000 square feet, said Bartolacci.

The business, gym tiME, is already expanding and they've only been in for two months, said Bartolacci.

He is currently reserving space (about 20 percent) to adjust for the expansion of his current clientele, said Bartolacci.

In the next few weeks, the developer will expand the rear parking lot to create an additional 250 spaces on the west side to combine it with the Forks community park.

Once complete, there will be two major entrances to Park Plaza.

The 108,000-square-foot site formerly housed a Laneco shopping center and is about two miles from Downtown Easton.
