A Harrisburg revitalization project that aims to bring affordable housing and new retail space to the South Allison Hill neighborhood kicked off last week.

Last week, Mayor Eric Papenfuse and other city officials came together with the developers behind the MulDer Square project for a groundbreaking ceremony.

Three new mixed-use buildings that will include 50 apartments and lower-level retail space will replace 10 older properties being demolished around Mulberry and Derry streets.

The Derry-Thompson building will have two-and three-bedroom apartments, while the East and West Mulberry buildings will have a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units. The East complex also will have nearly 2,600 square feet of retail space.

All three buildings will have common areas for residents as well as a parking garage.

Ohio-based developer Miller-Valentine Group is redeveloping the site with the Harrisburg Housing Authority. Massachusetts-based Cutler Associates Inc. is the construction manager on the project. 

Construction of the three buildings was budgeted at $12.4 million, according to Cutler officials. The full cost to redevelop the site was not immediately available. A $3 million state redevelopment grant was awarded last fall to support the project.

The project is expected to be completed by next summer.
