Penn Center Campus for sale for $22 million

Penn Center Campus, the former Polyclinic Medical Center, in Harrisburg is up for sale for $22 million. 

Michael Daley, partner, Penn Center Harrisburg LP, said the campus has three office buildings on 6.5 acres in Uptown Harrisburg. 

In 2002, Penn Center Harrisburg converted the buildings on the northern portion of the property to commercial office space. Daley said more than $18 million was invested in the property. 

The three buildings located at 2601 N. Third St., total 273,520 square feet with One Penn Center offering 169,852 square feet; Two Penn Center, 23,860 square feet, and Three Penn Center, 79,808 square feet. 

These buildings were part of the Polyclinic Medical Center, which served Harrisburg and the region since early in the 20th century, Daley said. Polyclinic Medical Center merged into Pinnacle Health Hospitals in the mid-90’s.  

The Campus is bounded by Third Street to the west, Fourth Street to the east, Wiconisco Street to the north and Polyclinic Avenue to the south, he said. 

Currently, the Pennsylvania Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs, the state Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs and the U.S. Small Business Administration are tenants, he said. 

“Harrisburg needs residential space,” Daley said of suggested uses. The buildings could be converted into apartments. “Just look at the hospital in Lancaster. That was converted into housing,” he said, referring to the former St. Joseph’s Hospital that was most recently UPMC Pinnacle. 

“But we don’t get into that,” he said. “My partner, Burton Morris and I own the real estate and rent it out.”
