    Hill Wallack LLP Partner Timothy J. Duffy At Work in $100 Million Dollar Enhancement of Newtown Borough's Commercial Core

    Steeple View is a mixed-use “traditional neighborhood” project being developed in the heart of Newtown Borough’s shopping district on an eight acre site previously occupied by a car dealership and also home to the Newtown Borough Wine and Spirits Shop. This $100,000,000.00 enhancement will include retail space (housing, among others, Banana Republic and Francesca’s) and will also feature custom condominiums, restaurants, office space, a public piazza, and a greenway and walking trail along the Newtown Creek.

    Groundbreaking for Phase I of this two phase project took place on December 15, 2015 with a short-on site ceremony attended by the developer, members of Borough Council and key members of the land development and design team for the project, including Hill Wallack LLP partner, Timothy J. Duffy.

    Mr. Duffy has represented the developer, Steeple View, LP, for the past several years and obtained all of the zoning, land development and historic review approvals from the Borough for the first Phase of the project, and for which permits have recently been issued. Phase II of the project is in the midst of the land development process. Mr. Duffy recently obtained the zoning relief needed with regard to the height of several of the proposed structures as well as other required dimensional variances.
