Construction seems to be happening next to Target on Route 73 in Marlton.

I'm kind of obsessed with new construction. I get all inquisitive as soon as I see a 'sold' sign on a piece of South Jersey land, and even more so when the architect trailer and bulldozers show up. The mental question 'What's going there?' gets me excited.

Last week on my way to my HydraFacial appointment at Dr. Lyle Back, a clearing of space between Target and Ocean First Bank (at Ardsley Dr.) that drew my attention. Fences are up, equipment is leveling off the ground...something's coming...but, what?

So here goes my brain. Starbucks Drive-Thru (there's another not far from this Target on Rt. 73 but it's on the other side of the road)? But, no, right? Because the Target store probably already has it's own Starbucks. Hmm...Panera? Chipotle? South Jersey could use a few more of those. Or should I think bigger? Like, Cheesecake Factory or The Container Store. There's so much already going on in the stretch of 73 that takes you through Voorhees, Marlton, and Cherry Hill, so it's hard to think what might be MISSING in those areas.

Of course, it could also be another mattress store or cell phone store. Loads of times I've gotten my hopes up that something cool is being built and to see a mattress store (no offense, lol).

Well, since there's no sign currently erected at this particular space that gives any indication of what it will ultimately become, I guess I'll just have to keep an eye on its progress. But, if you happen to know what the plan is, let me know!

What do you think is being built here, or should be? Let me know in the comment box below.
