At a groundbreaking ceremony today, Vartan Group, Inc. unveiled plans for Commercial Core Building #4 at Susquehanna Union Green.
Scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of this year, it is the latest piece of the master planned development to come to life.
Renderings of the building depict a cluster of retail storefronts with unique architecture at each entrance, fronting a pedestrian promenade with street parking, in a nod to new urbanism.
Upon completion, the building will have five tenants ranging from 1,300 to 2,900 square feet. The building is tightly integrated into a network of outdoor spaces. Tenant suites open directly onto courtyards and patios. Other special features of the tenant spaces include double-height ceilings, multiple frontages with fenestration, exposed ceilings and finished concrete floors.
The building has begun pre-leasing and space remains available for qualified tenants. The leasing agents are Drew Bobincheck, Michelle Gueci, and Justin Shoemaker with Landmark Commercial Realty.
“Susquehanna Township is where I was born and grew up,” said H. Ralph Vartan, Chief Executive Officer of the Vartan Group. “It is a dream come true to contribute to the community character of my hometown with this building.”
“We are very excited to see this project continue to build on its momentum,” said Mike Pries, Chairman of the Dauphin County Board of Commissioners. “Susquehanna Union Green is a credit to the community, Township leaders, and the Vartan Group, for working together and developing a destination which will be enjoyed by the community for decades to come. Projects like this further cement Dauphin County as a great place to live, work and play,” Pries added.
“Susquehanna Township’s Commissioners and professional staff applaud this latest milestone in the development of Susquehanna Union Green,” said Frank Lynch, township board president. “Today’s groundbreaking – as well as all other phases of the project – demonstrates the tremendous benefits that can accrue when business, municipal and residents’ interests are carefully considered and fairly applied in a way that benefits all.”
