Edgewood Council Approves Sale of Parcel D
Edgewood Council has Approved an Agreement of Sale for Parcel D
with McDonald’s USA.
Site had remained vacant for over 23 years.
The Agreement of Sale for the 7.4 acre lot, known as Parcel D,
was approved by a unanimous vote of Council on April 1. The lot (located
on Braddock Ave. beside the Edgewood Town Centre development) was
previously advertised for sale several years ago without success, and
more recently in July of 2012.
In July 2012, a bid of $500,000 from Cendeco, Inc. was accepted
by Council. The deal later fell through. The lot was re-advertised in
January 2013. Two bids were received and opened by Council on March 4: a
bid of $500,000 from Cendeco and a bid of $600,000 from McDonald’s USA.
After legal review, the highest responsible bid, made by McDonald’s USA,
Parcel D was originally to be developed by Oxford Development
as part of the Edgewood Town Centre complex, but after plans to develop
the site were scrapped, the property was deeded back to the Borough in
1993. The lot has remained unoccupied since that date due to recorded
covenants with existing businesses.
Borough Council determined that the cost of maintaining and
repairing the empty lot, insurance costs, and the loss of potential tax
revenue presented an unnecessary financial liability to Borough
Parcel D is zoned for business.

recycling bin, or recycle them with other papers in the bins behind the
