A fresh set of construction projects advances in Central Pennsylvania every spring. Here is a roundup of some of the places you can expect to see earth moving or other activity in 2017.
The retail landscape will be expanding quite a bit in Manheim Township this year with two big projects starting to take shape.
The first, the Shoppes at Belmont, is already underway on Fruitville Pike at Route 30. Site work began last fall and dirt has been flying this year as developers plan to start buildings this spring.
Kevin Lahn, vice president at R.J. Waters & Associates Inc., said the plan is to complete tenant buildings this fall and open the center by the first quarter of 2018. Whole Foods is the lead anchor in the center, which is about 90 percent pre-leased. Target, Dick's Sporting Goods, Nordstrom Rack and Michaels are other major tenants in the center, which will cover about 370,000 square feet.
