Owner of K&W Engineers receives CREDC funds for Harrisburg move
The new owner of Harrisburg's historic Horace King Mansion on North Front Street is drawing on state-backed financing to help cover planned improvements to the building.
The Harrisburg Regional Chamber and Capital Region Economic Development Corp. provided $325,000 in the form of a low-interest Enterprise Zone loan. The funds will be used for renovations on the second floor of the mansion, which will be the new home of K&W Engineers and Consultants. The firm is moving from Swatara Township into the city.
Marc Kurowski, principal owner of the site design firm, bought the property at 2201 N. Front St. from the owner of Webclients.net, an internet advertising firm. The $1.8 million sale closed this week.
K&W, which was founded in 2005, will move 10 full-time jobs into the city. Kurowski said in May that he anticipates a mid-September move.
Orrstown Bank provided the financing for the purchase of the mansion.
The first floor of the building is leased to business-to-business marketing agency Sacunas Inc.
Chuck Heller of Landmark Commercial Realty represented Kurowski and Bill Sturges and Jim Brady of Landmark represented the seller. Heller and Josh Krevsky are handling the leasing of additional vacant space at the property.
