Campbell Commercial Real Estate, Inc. and the Lower Allen Township Development Authority announced the final project to redevelop the Lower Allen Commons, formerly occupied by the Bon-Ton and Borders bookstore.
The 17,500-square-foot retail building sold for $10 million and completes the development authority’s involvement in the area. A development authority bought the building out of bankruptcy in 2019 and built a condominium that includes the existing Bonefish Grill and Texas Roadhouse restaurants.
Among the businesses in the area are Trader Joe’s, Sport Clips, Apricot Lane Boutique and The Good Feet Store.
The authority is determined to create first-rate development without spending any tax dollars, a press release said. Completing the project during the COVID shutdown and supply chain issues added further complications.
It all came together, thanks to the effort and cooperation of Erin Trone, director of Economic and Community Development for Lower Allen Township, and the authority, Art Campbell and Larry Kostelac of Campbell Commercial, and the Lower Allen Township board of commissioners.
In addition to the township, Tom Richey of Third Mountain Consulting, LLC, Eastern PCM, BL Companies, York Excavating, Wagman Construction, Ames Construction, Leer Electrical, and F&M Trust worked together to complete the new Camp Hill shopping center.
Springwood Development opened a SpringHill Suites by Marriott in October 2022 and a new Chick-fil-A currently under construction is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2023.
Unit 1, the last 1 acre parcel, was sold in October 2022 and a new 11,000 square foot building is proposed, the release said.
