The developers of Easton Town Center announced their $500 million expansion plan in November of 2018, and work has continued at a steady pace ever since.

The first new businesses opened late last year, and more were scheduled to open this spring, although many of those plans have been put on hold due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

A recent visit found work was continuing on several new buildings on the south side of Worth Avenue, which runs through the new expansion. Construction seems to have mostly wrapped up on a new office building – at the corner of Worth and Seltzer – and an adjacent five-story parking garage.

Work has not yet started on the empty block of land south of Alston Street where zoning now allows for buildings as tall as 200 feet.

Easton Town Center reopened today, May 12, but with new procedures and safety measures in place.
