Project History
Suburban Square shopping center, located along Pennsylvania’s Main Line, opened for business in 1928. The center soon contained a Strawbridge and Clothier department store, and marked the first “suburban” location for a major retailer. Originally designed by Dreher and Churchman, the center shops share a uniform aesthetic. Unlike many other “malls” of the time, which consisted of one large building housing numerous shops, Suburban Square was modeled after a downtown street, and could be expanded by adding new streets and “blocks of merchants. Today, seventy five years after opening, Suburban Square is still expanding and improving.
