Huge News!!!

Harrisburg University is sending out RFP for mixed use building at corner of 3rd and Chestnut. (Currently a surface lot).

Plan calls for School of Pharmacy and School of Nursing, hotel and student housing, calling for about 500,000 square feet. The proposal also allots the developer to add additional residential space for apartments etc. Given the lot size and the potential to have 600,000 square feet, this looks to be over 400 feet, possibly 500 feet and I would say around 20 - 30 stories.

This is huge news for Harrisburg, and most certainly kicks off some new momentum for the city!

Great news! I love to see progress in Harrisburg, this city will have so much potential once it gets out of its financial dilemma. Until then it's nice to see advancements like this, and it will add to the already beautiful skyline.

Yea it really is. Harrisburg literally has potential to be one of the coolest small cities in the USA. Its footprint is so unique. It has relevant and beautiful and sizable historic architecture, scenically placed along the river, a dense downtown/urban core, (Harrisburg's skyline is more impressive than Phoenix, AZ), and is geographically within the fringe of the Mid - Atlantic metropolis so has access to so much.

As cost of living continues to escalate in D.C, Philadelphia and NYC, I really see Harrisburg gaining strength and really taking off. It literally could be one of the coolest cities in the USA.
