The freestanding building is located at the entrance of the Exton Square Mall near two major thoroughfares, State Route 100 and U.S. Route 30.

Jim Galbally, Bill Moylan and Colin Behr of JLL handled the transaction on behalf of the seller, Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (PREIT). A New York-based investment firm purchased the asset for an undisclosed price.
