Medical office slated for plot across from Yorkshire Elementary
One of the last few plots of land available in Springettsbury Township is being prepped for a tenant.
Pineapple Investment Properties LLC of Wrightsville last February submitted a land development plan to township officials for the construction of a proposed medical office at 2990 Eastern Blvd.
The plot is at the corner of Eastern Boulevard and Mills Street, across from Yorkshire Elementary School.
The township anticipates York-based Susquehanna Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery PC will occupy the building, said Springettsbury Township planning assistant Raphael Caloia.
According to land development plans, the nearly 4,800-square-foot medical office and parking area is situated on 1.4 acres of land. Ground is already broken, Caloia added.
“It’s a dental surgery and plastic surgery business,” he said. “They’re starting their building process.”
Caloia said Pineapple Investment Properties needs a building permit before construction of the medical office. He predicted it could be “optimistically, up and running by the end of the year.”
The township is mostly built out, he added.
Building permits for new construction are definitely a good sign of a healthy economy, Springettsbury Township manager Ben Marchant said.
"A single project by itself does not indicate whether the economy overall is growing, contracting or staying the same," he said. "Fortunately, the township is in discussions with several parties interested in developing or redeveloping properties within the township. This indicates a healthy economy for the township."
