Sounds like a counter suit is in the works!
The number of jobs created is relatively small at 20; however the site gets cleaned up and given a purpose. Considering its proximity to our State Capitol Complex, this is good news as it will enhance the appearance the area surrounding the capitol. Harsco is spending $2 million to renovate the site which is a significant investment in the City of Harrisburg. The improvements should be completed by April.
More good news is that Harsco will be relocating 35 senior-level positions to a new site near its Camp Hill headquarters. This move will help Harsco’s leadership function as a more unified team.

This is one of those moments that makes sitting here blogging away every day worth the effort.
I wrote a post for Code Blue’s The Pulse blog about an adaptive reuse project, here in Pottstown, that would transform the old armory building on King Street into luxury apartments. This would be significant as there are several other projects lining up along the same lines. If this project is successful, it could jump-start redevelopment in the central core neighborhood.
As an example of adaptive reuse in a central downtown neighborhood, I cited the Connell Building project in Scranton‘s central business district. My post and reference to Scranton’s renaissance caught the eye of Scranton Mayor Chris Doherty. As a result, I am traveling to Scranton on Tuesday to meet Mayor Doherty and get the mayoral tour of Central Scranton. I am more than a little excited!
Here is a link to my post about the armory project:
There will be a posting and lots of pictures from my trip!
