Blue Bell Commercial Real Estate

Blue Bell Commercial Real EstateBlue Bell, PA features commercial real estate availability in a historic and affluent Montgomery County community. The town of Blue Bell – an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) within Whitpain Township, Pennsylvania – is one of the oldest settlements in the state and one of the most desirable places to live.

Blue Bell is a smaller community, based just off of the PA Turnpike where the Turnpike meets with its northeast extension (I-476). U.S. Route 202 borders the north side of Blue Bell, making the road a viable spot for restaurants, wineries, and higher end hospitality businesses.

While Blue Bell is considered a Philadelphia suburb, it is a tightly knit community and is also surrounded by several other well-populated areas, including Ambler, Plymouth Meeting, Norristown and others. With a dense population of residents, people will need the necessities of life, including groceries, gas, healthcare, and of course, employment. It’s an ideal spot for a chain of restaurants to expand, for a healthcare facility to set up shop, or for a supermarket to add to its list of locations.

A Brief History of Blue Bell

Whitpain Township was part of a 4,500-acre (7-square-mile) tract of land that London butcher Richard Whitpaine purchased from William Penn in 1682. Whitpaine’s son Zechariah was 16 years old when he traveled to Pennsylvania later that year to settle the property. Zechariah built a plantation house along the Wissahickon Creek and lived there with his wife, Sarah Songhurst, whom he met onboard ship during his journey to America.

The Blue Bell Inn received its current name in 1840 when a bell tower was installed above the hotel and became the centerpiece of the town. The facility operated as a guest house until 1967 when it was converted to a restaurant, a role it continues to serve today.

The Blue Bell section of Whitpain Township is home to many office parks and corporate headquarters among its array of Montgomery County commercial real estate. Two of the largest employers in the area are Aetna, Inc., a managed health care company that also sells medical, pharmaceutical, dental, behavioral health, long-term care, and disability insurance plans; and Montgomery County Community College, a two-year institution of higher learning established more than five decades ago and now offers more than 100 different types of Associates degrees and certificates.

Blue Bell and Whitpain Township also are home to Wings Field, a general aviation airport that was founded in 1930 and was the headquarters of the now-worldwide Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association when that organization was formed in 1939. Wings Field has one asphalt runway and sees an average of 100 takeoffs and landings each day.

As of the latest U.S. Census, there were 18,562 people, 6,960 households, and 5,206 families residing in Whitpain Township. The median income for a household was $88,933, and the median income for a family was $103,613. In July 2005, Money magazine ranked Blue Bell 14th on its list of the “100 Best Places to Live in the United States.”
