Equipment Company, whose front lawn of its 16.5 acre site at the intersectionof Dutilh and Rt. 19 was frequently used to showcase heavy construction
equipment, is gone. Its buildings havebeen razed and their rubble moved offsite. In their place the owner, David Smail, has approached the Townshipseeking conditional use and preliminary land development approval for a neighborhood
shopping center. Although no leaseagreements are currently in place for the store spaces, if the plan is approved
as presented, it would include 81,600 square feet of retail space, plus an 8,050square foot restaurant and a 2,800 square foot bank with a drive-thru
window. It would also connect viaAmerican Way with the adjacent Home Depot site – which Smail also owns – as
well as with The Streets of Cranberry. At is April 26 meeting, Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors agreed to
consider action on the developer’s application at its May 3 meeting.
