Lower Allen Commons adds a Hotel to the High-End Retail Center

Real Estate News

Springwood Hospitality from York has purchased the 2.02-acre condominium pad and will immediately begin construction of a 5-story, 124 guest room Springhill Suites by Marriott.

The new hotel will have outdoor spaces featuring a fire pit and soft-seating areas. The lobby and common areas will feature a much-larger-than-usual fitness center that offers a wider variety of fitness equipment. The interactive digital wall art features brand curated artwork with moving elements and brand/hotel information designed to activate the lobby space and create engagement with guests. Hot complimentary breakfast with a variety of proteins, fresh fruit and healthy options, will be available daily. A seasonal beverage cart and snacks for purchase will be available in the evenings. Guests can enjoy their selections in the activated lobby with games. Suites will provide separate living and sleeping areas with USB ports strategically built-in throughout.

Springwood Hospitality operates 14 hotels throughout multiple Central PA counties.

The new hotel is next to the soon to be completed retail center that includes Trader Joe’s, Sports Clips, and The Good Feet Store. Springwood Hospitality has hired Benchmark Construction as the general contractor. Benchmark will immediately begin construction with a completion date anticipated in July 2022.

The Development Authority purchased the Bon-Ton site in 2019 after the retailer filed for bankruptcy with the intent to redevelop the site to ensure it was not left vacant. Max Stoner, Chairman of the Development Authority, said, “We are glad to bring the new hotel and adjoining retail back to the site to and create a new, vibrant center in Lower Allen Township.”

Current tenants in Lower Allen Commons include Bonefish Grill, Texas Roadhouse and Burger King, all of whom have recently extended their leases to remain part of Lower Allen Commons. There are two additional pad sites 1.01 Acres and 1.12 acres that will be developed for retail uses and are being marketed by Campbell Commercial Real Estate, Inc.

Art Campbell, Larry Kostelac, and Jessica Gasper coordinated the transaction between Lower Allen Township Development Authority and Springwood Hospitality.
