Cranberry's version of "restaurant row" is continuing to expand.
The mile-or-so stretch of Route 228 that hosts a variety of eateries from Olive Garden and Smokey Bones to Echo and Jimmy Wan's to Noodles Inc. and Juniper Grill is attracting a couple more restaurant tenants.
The new development will be a westward continuation of Cranberry Crossroads, which is home to the new Dick's Sporting Goods -- projects of ECHO Inc., the development arm of Giant Eagle.
Township planning director Ron Henshaw said plans call for a new multi-tenant building of about 12,100 square feet to be built on 6.5 acres on the north side of Route 228, toward Route 19.
One of the new restaurants will be Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza. The restaurant is in the process of obtaining a state liquor license.
A second building on the site, about 5,500 square feet in size, is to host another dining option, the identity of which has not yet been released. Construction is to begin in the spring.
Route 228 in Cranberry offers more than a dozen dining options for residents and visitors to the township's bustling commercial district.
The offerings include Longhorn Steakhouse and Red Robin, Applebees and Subway, Moe's Southwest Grille, On the Border and DiBella's Old-Fashioned Submarines, Chick-fil-A and McDonald's.neigh_north
