Pa. Corrections Department to nab new offices in Cumberland County

A land deal expected to close this month in Hampden Township, Cumberland County, will help consolidate some state Corrections Department functions.

A land deal expected to close this month in Hampden Township, Cumberland County, will help consolidate some state Corrections Department functions.

Construction at the Cumberland Technology Park will begin in October, said Eric Hunter, a partner with development firm Hudson Holding Co., based in Hermitage, Mercer County. The project will take about a year to complete, he said.

Hudson will own the 65,000-square-foot building and lease it to the department for $85,000 a month for 20 years, said Sue McNaughton, a spokeswoman for the department. The state is paying about the same amount for less office space now at multiple buildings around Central Pennsylvania, she said.

The department has an option to add a total of 100,000 square feet to the building. Lease costs would increase to $100,000 a month for the added area, she said.

The new building will bring administrative and support staff under one roof, McNaughton said.

Hudson has built about 25 other offices for the state, including state police barracks and the Department of Public Welfare offices in Harrisburg, Hunter said.

Elysian Partners owns and manages the land at Cumberland Technology Park. About 92 acres of the 200-acre park are developed, said Phil Markovitz, the company’s chief operating officer.

Elysian, based in Boca Raton, was founded in Harrisburg in 1991.
