Live. Work. Play.
in Lower Makefield
On April 7, 2021, the Lower Makefield Township Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve final land development approval for Prickett Preserve at Edgewood, providing for a Wegmans, retail stores, residential living and family-oriented open space. The site will preserve the historic nature of the surrounding community and provide traffic improvements to nearby roads.
ABOUT PRICKETT PRESERVE AT EDGEWOOD
The mixed-use development will be located on 36 acres of land in Lower Bucks County across the street from the popular Shady Brook Farm and it will create a much-needed link between the Corporate Center and the Historical Edgewood Village. The community village will include the award-winning Wegmans, providing all the great, fresh-food favorites at a convenient location, along with several new retail stores and upscale residential living. The proposal provides for the preservation of the two historical buildings, which will be incorporated into the community gathering area.
In addition, it will include a commitment for $7 million in traffic safety improvements to help improve the current traffic conditions around the area, as well as install a pedestrian path over 295. This path will connect Prickett Preserve, Shady Brook Farm, the Corporate Center, and Edgewood Village, which will greatly enhance the Township’s extensive trail system.
All of these new amenities and features will allow residents to live, work and play in Lower Makefield. The community village will generate $1.75 million annually in new net tax revenues for the school district and township. Under the land’s current zoning usage, a warehouse could be placed on the site, which would create only $175,000 in total tax revenues.
High-Quality, Fresh Food Options

TAX REVENUE & ECONOMIC BOOST
The roads and intersections around the proposed site will include substantial traffic improvements which will not only meet the needs of the proposed development but improve problems that exist today. Additionally, there will be a pedestrian path installed over 295, connecting Prickett Preserve, Shady Brook Farm, the Corporate Center, and Edgewood Village, which will greatly enhance the Township’s extensive trail system. All improvements must be reviewed and approved by the Township Supervisors and PennDOT.
The Wegmans would provide a new local option for high-quality, fresh food at a convenient location for many residents, who currently travel to New Jersey for the same shopping access. Wegmans is continuously ranked as a top national grocery store and will provide more options for those who currently live and work in Lower Makefield.
The community village will generate $1.75 million annually in new net tax revenues for the Pennsbury School District ($1.5 million) and the Township of Lower Makefield ($200,000). There will be almost 400 new full-time positions created through the retail stores. Additionally, based on the nationally recognized methodology for estimating school-age children, the proposed multi-family community will only add 11 children to the Pennsbury School District.
The 1700s Prickett house and renovated barn will be completely preserved and will serve as anchors for the planned community gathering area.
The mixed-use development would complement the adjacent corporate center and help fill office vacancies. Additionally, it will allow employees to access the grocery, retail and even live within walking distance to their office.
