Demolition work has begun at the intersection of Route 30 and North George Street, where a new Taco Bell and shops planned for the space. 

Stu Olewiler, Manchester Township's zoning and planning officer, said Tuesday that demolition permits were submitted by developer George Street Investors LLC.

In addition to a Taco Bell, a small retail building is also planned for the site, but no building permits have been issued, Olewiler said. 

In total, five buildings on eight parcels of land are being demolished, according to York County tax records.

The sale price for the eight parcels is $1.965 million and amounts to 1.25 acres of land, according to records.

George Street Investors LLC bought the land in July 2019 from two different developers, Molt LLC and 334 Hospitality LLC. 

While plans for the Taco Bell are underway, questions regarding the status of the Taco Bell located at 1800 N. Susquehanna Trail — just down the road from the other location — are still unknown.

"We were not informed of the status of the existing Taco Bell," Olewiler said via email.

Employees at the 1800 N. Susquehanna Trail location were unaware of how the new location would impact the current one.

George Street Investors LLC first submitted plans for the project back in March 2017. 

In its proposal, it requested the addition of a drive-thru and for the several properties in the construction zone to be combined into a single lot, according to a public notice published on Manchester Township's website.
