Lower Macungie Tuesday reviewed Jaindl’s Trexler Business Center plan, which would include a Movie Tavern

LOWER MACUNGIE TOWNSHIP — A proposed shopping center next to the Walmart Supercenter on Hamilton Boulevard would feature the Lehigh Valley’s first Movie Tavern and up to seven retailers and restaurants.

But the Dallas-based theater’s hope of opening late this year might be ambitious, given some issues involving traffic patterns around, and access to, Jaindl Land Co.’s proposed Trexler Business Center.

On Tuesday, the Lower Macungie Township Planning Commission reviewed the 116,400-square-foot center. It’s anchored by a 47,000-square-foot theater, announced in October, that would offer patrons food and drinks served at their seats during the film, the first theater of its kind in the area.

The shopping center would be on a 17-acre, triangular-shaped property east of the Walmart Supercenter, south of Bastian Carpet One and Hamilton Animal Care, and northwest of the eighth and ninth holes at Shepherd Hills Golf Club. It combines five parcels and calls for five stand-alone buildings.

The main entranceway would be in the 6100 block of Hamilton Boulevard, between Bastian Carpet and Hamilton Animal Care.

Last June, David Jaindl offered to pay for construction of a traffic roundabout at the entrance, but the plan now calls for an adaptive traffic signal like the ones being installed around the nearby Hamilton Crossings shopping center.
