There is a probable significant change in plans for the redevelopment of the Abington YMCA property when the Y relocates to Willow Grove in October. BET Investments has shelved its plans for the Abington Terrace age-55+ apartment complex. Instead, they have entered into an agreement with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to build the latest of CHOP’s small number of specialty and urgent care outpatient centers, which will function similarly to CHOP Specialty Care, Princeton at Plainsboro (https://www.CHOP.edu/locations/specialty-care-princeton-plainsboro).

A communtiy meeting will be held by both BET and CHOP to discuss their plans, including preliminary renderings of the new redevelopment plan, as well as, an opportunity for resident questions.
