Sports City back on the market

After going under contract earlier this summer, a Dauphin County indoor sports complex is back on the market.

RSR Realtors said Tuesday that the Sports City facility on Linglestown Road in Lower Paxton Township is again available for purchase.

The site had been under contract for a baseball and softball training franchise called Frozen Ropes Training Center, but the potential buyer backed away from the deal due to a lack of outdoor fields.

The buyer, John Albarano, said he remains committed to putting a Frozen Ropes in the Hershey and Harrisburg area.

"We have started a new search for properties that will meet our needs," he said.

RSR CEO Jim Koury, the listing agent on the property, said the building has been relisted at a lower price. The 47,000-square-foot building is now available for $1.95 million, down from $2.4 million.

The owner, Eric Kessler, is looking to retire and is motivated to sell the property, Koury said. He believes the facility could work for a discount retailer or potentially as a distribution or wholesale center.

Meanwhile, the Capital Area Soccer Association will continue to use the facility, at least in the short term, Koury said. Another tenant, Kimlee Vietnamese Restaurant, has a long-term lease.

This story has been updated to include comments from John Albarano.

Correction - Eric Kessler is not retiring. He is building a new strip mall less than 1/4 mile from Sports City. http://www.cpbj.com/article/20180518/CPBJ01/180519893/new-10m-retail-center-taking-shape-in-lower-paxton
He has chosen to build new instead of maintaining the Sports City complex.
