Fairview Crossroads project receives $1.2M infrastructure grant
The state has approved a $1.2 million infrastructure grant to support highway improvements near a large commercial project off Interstate 83 in northern York County.
The proposal from Elysian Partners LLC calls for 16 buildings and about 360,000 square feet of commercial space, including six restaurant pads and three hotels.
Dubbed Fairview Crossroads, the 84-acre tract off I-83 near the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Fairview Township also could include professional and medical offices, a daycare, flex industrial buildings and a pad for a convenience store and gas station.
Florida-based Elysian, which unveiled the concept over the summer, estimated the proposal's total construction cost at about $59 million, not including transportation improvements. The roadway improvements are expected to cost about $8 million, said state Sen. Mike Regan (R-York).
Elysian also owns the Cumberland Technology Park in Hampden Township.
The infrastructure grant was approved today by the Commonwealth Financing Authority through its multimodal transportation program, which was established by a state transportation funding package in 2013, known as Act 89. State Rep. Stan Saylor (R-York) announced the grant, one of more than 100 multimodal projects across the commonwealth to receive funding.
The state money would help support construction of a single lane roundabout at the intersection of Lewisberry Road, the I-83 south ramps and a proposed main entrance to the development. In addition, two township roads with sidewalks would be constructed in the development.
A timeline for development at Fairview Crossroads has not been established, though construction is likely to occur in phases over several years.
