As Topgolf Entertainment Group readies to open its 48th location in Mount Laurel, N.J., the company is exploring adding locations in the region and is already eyeing sites in King of Prussia and Philadelphia, according to several sources.
The King of Prussia location would be on a property that has been used for years for the American Baptist Churches USA headquarters at 588 N. Gulph Road, according to people familiar with the plans. The site totals 48.5 acres and is well located at Gulph Road and First Avenue with nearby access to Route 422 and other major roadways.
The other location under consideration is the former Nabisco and Mondelēz International factory at 12000 Roosevelt Blvd. in Northeast Philadelphia. The 27-acre property is owned by a joint venture involving Provco Group of Villanova, Pa., Goodman Properties of Jenkintown, Pa., and MCB Real Estate of Baltimore, Md. They have plans for a multi-phased mixed-use development with the first phase set to include a Wawa convenience store and gas station.
The King of Prussia project is also being pursued by Provco Group and a representative from the real estate company declined to comment.
The Dallas-based company opened what it called its largest location in the world at the Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City earlier this year. Topgolf, which is in expansion mode, isn’t divulging much information about its future locations.
