Fully leased Camp Hill office building sold

Evergreen Center, a fully occupied, multi-tenant office building at 101 Erford Road, East Pennsboro Township, has been sold by Szeles Real Estate Development Co. LP for an undisclosed price.

Landmark Commercial Realty handled the transaction involving the 25,925-square-foot brick edifice, which sits on 2.41 acres. The buyer is 101 Erford Road LLC.

At the time of the sale, the property, which has plenty of windows to bring in natural light, was fully leased with a strong mix of local, regional and national tenants, a release from Landmark said.

The site, also known for its “prominent visibility” and close proximity to Penn State Health and UPMC health care systems, “presents a unique investment opportunity. With staggered lease expirations and significant remaining terms, it offers long-term potential for prospective buyers. The tenant mix is carefully curated, ensuring a diverse and stable source of income for investors.”

Near the Penn State Health Holy Spirit Hospital campus, Camp Hill Commons and various multi-family developments, 101 Erford Road is undergoing renovations, expected to be completed later this year, that will improve all common areas, bathrooms and lobbies with new flooring, lighting and ceilings.

Recent upgrades to the property include the installation of a solar panel system and a new energy-efficient white roof.

State-of-the-art ionized air purification equipment also has been added to the heating, ventilation and air conditioning units. This eliminates odors, air pollutants, chemical odors, smoke, mold, bacteria and viruses, significantly reducing airborne microbes.
