Harsco has sold its Wormleysburg headquarters for $4.3 million as part of its plans to move its operations to Philadelphia.
Larry Kluger, president and CEO of Rhodes Development Group, one of the investors which purchased the 42,000–square-foot building, said Rhodes will move into the majority of the space, but will be leasing one floor back to Harsco for five years as part of the deal.
“This is a marquee building in a prime location in this market,” he said of the company’s decision to buy the property. “We thought the amenities would be great for our employee owners.”
Rhodes, whose signature projects include the Penn National Insurance Building in Harrisburg, has been in business for 55 years in Lemoyne and employs about 300 people, he said.
Rhodes and two of its divisions, Property Management Inc. And Capitol View Construction, plan to move into the Wormleysburg property in February, he said. A third division, CF Acri & Sons, an HVAC and plumbing business, will remain in Harrisburg.
