What’s Being Built on White Horse Pike in Galloway Might Not Be What We Thought
We've been closely watching a construction project on E. White Horse Pike in Galloway for months. Now that a structure is finally taking shape, it may not be at all what we thought was being built.
Ah, the rumor mill. It can really get the mind going. I live in Galloway, and the minute I spotted an architect trailer next to the CVS on White Horse Pike at Jimmie Leeds Road, I began to speculate what the space was being cleared for.
Slowly, over time, it became evident that quite a bit of real estate was going to be involved, so I thought maybe houses or condos. Then, I noticed some banter on social media that the project was for a new Chick-fil-A or a Wendy's, which really got me excited.
I had been away on vacation the last week and a half, and when I returned to Galloway I noticed the metal framework of a building that looks far too large and rectangular to be a freestanding fast food restaurant. It looks more like a shopping strip. That's not to say SOME sort of eatery couldn't be part of it, but it's clearly not a Chick-fil-A or Wendy's.
A sign on the property is recruiting the space for retail and restaurant, so I don't think it's medical offices or anything like that. And it's not to say, because SO much land had been razed, that more than just a strip mall could be eventually be getting built. It is a prime piece of real estate, after all, with great exposure.
Hey, if you happen to know anything more specific about this construction, beyond the rumors, let me know in the comment box below and I'll update this story. Thanks!
