When developer Mitchell Davis helps cut the ribbon on his newly developed apartment complex, Jackie’s Crossing, on Jan. 20 in the heart of Marlton—which is also known as Evesham Township—it will represent his ongoing commitment and successful relationship with the township.
Davis is CEO of Marlton-based Davis Enterprises, and his Jackie’s Crossing is a 4-story 55-unit, market rate rental apartment complex comprised of 1-and -2 bedroom apartments and townhomes. Amenities include selective garages, a state of the art fitness center, clubhouse and outdoor gathering space.
Davis has built some prominent properties in town, including The Promenade at Sagemore, an upscale shopping center with high end retail; the Allison and Sagemore Apartments; and The Weston Club, an adult community.
“It’s our goal to cater to every lifestyle stage and income level, from young professionals to empty nesters to retirees,” explained Davis.
Next to Davis at the ribbon-cutting will be Marlton Mayor Randy Brown who has been an active partner with Davis on a number of projects.
Brown has been a pro-development mayor with a large number of projects he has helped bring to town including Carlo’s Bakery of the famed TV show Cake Boss, a number of new apartments, commercial spaces, and sporting complexes and fields to attract youth sports tournaments to town.
Drive across town and you will see a number of new commercial and mixed use properties being built.
For example, construction is ongoing for the new Chickie’s & Pete’s, a successful sports bar and restaurant chain, which is expected to open soon.
In addition, Moody’s credit rating upgraded Marlton last year from an Aa3 to Aa2 rating, which allows the township to pay less interest on debt.
Asked what makes Marlton attractive to companies, Davis replied, “Marlton is very business friendly, and goes out of its way to bring business into town. Marlton has been and continues to be a growth community in terms of the business scene and real estate market, which go hand-in-hand.”
