RSR, REALTORS® handles $4.75 million sale of former D&H headquarters, clearing path for new state offices


HARRISBURG, PA -- The transformation of uptown Harrisburg and the Commonwealth's office footprint continues with the recent $4.75 million sale of the former D&H Distributing headquarters handled by Lemoyne-based RSR, REALTORS®.

RSR founder Bill Rothman and his son, Garrett Rothman, RSR's Broker of Record and a partner in the firm, handled the sale. Last year, Garrett Rothman represented D&H in their purchase of the site for the company's new 50-acre headquarters in Lower Paxton Township. 

The 2525 North Seventh Street site, where D&H had operated since 1952, will become the home of a modern, new, energy-efficient Commonwealth office building.  The structure is expected to house approximately 850 employees from the Departments of General Services, Human Services and Office of Administration.

 "This sale allows for the further centralization of a state workforce that is currently scattered throughout several buildings and holds the promise of advancing the ongoing revitalization of uptown Harrisburg,'' said Garrett Rothman.'' "We are excited to have played a role in this special opportunity to bring new vibrancy to both the state and the city."

When the new building is completed, state workers will relocate from the DGS Annex, the former Harrisburg State Hospital grounds, and state offices on Herr Street and the Office of Medical Assistance Programs space in Camp Hill.  The move is expected to occur in the first quarter of 2021.

"This sale clears the path for a new energy-efficient building," said Bill Rothman. "Through a build-to-suit lease, Hudson Companies, of Mercer County in Hermitage, Pennsylvania, will demolish the old structure and build a 120,000 square-feet, three-story building, with more than 1,000 employee and visitor parking spots."

The modern office space will house employees from the Office of Administration's Office of Information Technology and the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, including staff from the offices of Medical Assistance programs, income maintenance, administration, and children, youth and families and its 24/7 ChildLine operations.

This most recent transaction is the latest chapter in D&H's evolving success story.

"Our move into the newly renovated headquarters on Tech Drive was a monumental event in D&H's history," said D&H Co-President Dan Schwab. "It allowed us to provide room for future growth, while creating a campus designed specifically with our co-owner employees and family-oriented company culture in mind, including walking trails, outdoor WiFi, expanded and creatively themed collaborative spaces, and areas to help team members de-stress. The build-out rose to our expectations."

Both Dan Schwab and fellow Co-President Michael Schwab said they were happy to see their former headquarters site would continue to benefit Harrisburg.

"We're happy to know that close to a thousand state workers, and thousands more Pennsylvania citizens, will have a parallel experience in transitioning to a new and re-imagined workplace, constructed for them from the ground up," Dan Schwab said.

Michael Schwab agreed.

"We're nostalgic about our former Seventh Street home, but we're also encouraged to see that the property will similarly provide updated spaces for workers serving this community,'' Michael Schwab said.

"Harrisburg is part of D&H,'' Michael Schwab said. "We have been part of the fabric of this wonderful community for decades, so we were thrilled to see our old location be modernized and likely have a very positive impact on the local residents and business owners."

 Meyer's RV Superstores makes Rt. 22 in West Hanover Twp. an RV destination
RSR REALTORS® brokers site near the competition for NY-based business' first PA store

The just-opened Meyer's RV Superstores in West Hanover Township -- less than one mile from a major competitor -- will make Route 22 a destination for buyers in the market for the freedom, cost savings, and memories of RV travel.

Located at 7301 Allentown Boulevard, the New York-based Meyer's RV Superstores, owned by Mark Meyer, worked with RSR, REALTORS®'s CEO Jim Koury in buying the land for the company's first Pennsylvania store.

 "I don't mind being near other dealers," said Meyer. "In fact, I prefer it. I believe the competition not only makes you better but also drives more people to the area to shop."

  • The West Hanover location is Meyer's sixth store and is open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays; and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays.
  • For more information,

Meyer expects to employ a startup crew of 15 to 20 people at the new store. The site will offer sales, service, and parts and accessories, with rental possibilities in the future. In Pennsylvania, the RV industry contributed 4,683 direct jobs and $726.5 million in economic impact, according to 2017 figures from RVIA.

Meyer said Central Pennsylvania is hosting his first Pennsylvania store because he and senior manager Mark Calzone know the market from past years as a sponsor of RV shows in Hershey and Harrisburg. With RSR's "unbelievable" help, Meyer said he gained additional insights into the region's commercial prospects.

"RSR was top-notch to work with, and they had some great depth in the community to help us get started," he said.

In 2004, Meyer sold his original RV business, started by his father in 1967, to Camping World. As the RV industry boomed, with shipments rising from 285,749 nationwide in 2012 to 504,600 by 2016, he reassembled his team with Calzone, who was part of the original Meyer's Campers business.

"Because I had only worked in the RV business, I didn't know what I was missing until I got out of it," Meyer said. "Some of the top executives in the industry had started their careers with us, and they were driving the RV boom. I realized I could bring the same skills, and maybe more, to the wave, and I wanted to be part of it."

The West Hanover Township site occupies a growth corridor offering high visibility, convenient access, and comprehensive amenities, Koury said.

"Allentown Boulevard is booming," Koury said. "Customers curious about all the advantages of RVs can now explore an array of choices just minutes from Harrisburg and Hershey. They can toast their new find at a nearby restaurant, and shop for camping clothing and gear at outlets and retail stores. If this is a destination visit, they can stay overnight at a hotel along the corridor and keep exploring the region's rich culture."

And as Meyer noted, customers who drive off the lot can point their new RVs toward nearby camping grounds or state parks, "for the full RV experience from Day One."

Even accounting for RV payments and fuel, RV vacations save families from 8 percent to 64 percent over other forms of vacation travel, according to a June 2018 study from RVIA and Go RVing. While savings matter, Meyer strives to deliver a customized experience and assure families "the freedom to vacation whenever they have time."

"It doesn't matter if it's weekend, a week, or a month -- an RV is the only flexible and affordable way to travel," he said. "With all of the different uses today, from tailgating to race tracks to dog shows, RVing is a lifestyle. It's fun that pays you back in savings, but nothing can match the memories you create. Our goal is to create a network of dealerships that RV customers will recognize as a great place to do business."


611 Electric Avenue, Lewistown, PA 17044

Investors looking for a commercial real estate investment backed by a steady tenant with a long-term lease don't want to miss the DaVita Inc. Acute Kidney Care facility at 611 Electric Avenue in Lewistown.

Located on the busiest road in Mifflin County, DaVita has run its dialysis center at the two-story building since 1994 and is on their second, 20-year lease and recently completed a 22 bed, $1.3 million interior renovation. The current lease runs until 2034 and there are two, five-year options with bumps.

DaVita operates or provides administrative services at more than 2,300 dialysis facilities and domestically employed more than 65,000 in people in 2016.

"This is a great opportunity for an investor looking for a well-maintained building and a stable, long-term tenant,'' said Jan Castner of RSR, REALTORS, who is listing the property. "This is an investment that will provide a steady income stream and is one of the top commercial locations in the area.''


Wide range of potential uses for the 47,000-square foot flex building in growing commercial corridor

4141 Linglestown Road, Harrisburg, PA 17112

The former Sports City building on Linglestown Road in Lower Paxton Township is back on the market, presenting a golden opportunity for investors interested in either leasing to sports clubs or using the flex building for a variety of commercial applications.

One of the few facilities of its kind in the area, the building at 4141 Linglestown Road had been looked at by the Frozen Ropes Training Center baseball and softball franchise, but the potential buyer was looking for a location with outdoor fields as well as indoor space.

"We're disappointed but we had a lot of interest while the building was under contract,'' said RSR, REALTORS® CEO Jim Koury, who is listing the property. "It's an excellent opportunity for an investor looking for affordable flex space in the heart of one of the region's strongest growth corridors.''

The 47,000-square-foot building is also being offered at a reduced price -- $1.95 million from the original $2.4 million – because the owner is looking to retire and is motivated to sell, Koury said.

  • RSR, REALTORS® is listing the Sports City flex property at 4141 Linglestown Road, Harrisburg, PA 17112 – the former home of the Capital Area Soccer Association -- for $1.95 million. It is also available for lease at $3.95 per square foot.
  • For information on the property, contact Jim Koury, 717-439-2115 or

Sports City was the home of the Capital Area Soccer Association and Koury said that for now CASA will continue to play at the facility. One tenant, the popular Kimlee Vietnamese Restaurant, is staying and has a long-term lease.

Koury said the Sports City building offers buyers a range of options in addition to a sporting facility, adding that more than 2,500 families live in the surrounding Blue Mountain communities. The building could be perfect for a discount retailer or distribution or wholesale center.

Sports City offers:

  • Newer electric, gas furnaces, bathrooms, HVAC roof units, and parking lot, all from the 2005-06 renovations.
  • 36-foot ceilings.
  • 198 parking spaces.
  • Build-to-suit and ground lease possibilities.

"The Sports City complex offers potential buyers a number of attractive possibilities,'' Koury said. "It's in a prime location for either a sports facility or other commercial uses.'' 


A former 239-acre dairy farm offers a rare opportunity to develop one of the few remaining large tracts along Lower Swatara Township's growing Fulling Mill commercial corridor and Rt. 441, just minutes from Harrisburg International Airport.

The entire tract at 2400 Fulling Mill Road, which is listed for $11.9 million and has access to public water and sewer, is also being offered as four separate lots. While there are a mix of offices and warehouses nearby, 2400 Fulling Mill is zoned for residential and agricultural use, meaning a developer will need township approval for a plan that includes commercial or industrial uses.

On the largest of the four lots – 152.08 acres with frontage on Fulling Mill and Rt. 441, is the original 1777 farmhouse, featuring seven bedrooms and various upgrades including an indoor pool. A three-bedroom guest house, barns and outbuildings are also on the parcel.

  • For more information about 2400 Fulling Mill Road, Middletown, PA 17057, please contact Jim Koury of RSR, REALTORS® at 717-439-2115 or
  • The tract is ideally located to all major transportation centers, including two miles to both train and bus access, five miles to Harrisburg International Airport and within easy access of all major roadways: I-83, I-283, I-76 (PA Turnpike), Rt. 441, Rt. 322.
  • To see the full property listing, visit

"I believe there is the recognition that the highest and best use for this tract may not be solely residential and realizing its full potential will entail a developer working with the township to change the zoning,'' said Jim Koury, CEO of RSR, REALTORS®, who is listing the property. "The property also boasts a beautiful farmhouse and someone could maintain that part as a little farmette.''

Koury said flex buildings – combination office and warehouse structures – would make sense along the Rt. 441 and Fulling Mill Road frontage. Fulling Mill already has numerous office/warehouse buildings, including TE Connectivity at 2801 Fulling Mill Road.

In addition, the plan could call for a mix of single-family, townhomes and apartments on the residual acreage which would provide a buffer to the residents in Twelve Oaks and Longview Drive.

A 55-plus community could also be a good fit for part of the tract, Koury said.

Such a 55-plus development – The Pond on Fulling Mill – is currently under construction next door at Fulling Mill and Nissley Drive. Developers of The Pond have said plans call for a mix of mostly townhome and duplexes and have said demand in the area for 55-plus communities is high.

To Tom Williams and his three siblings, whose parents bought the property in 1933 and who still farms it with his wife of 55 years, Tiz, it makes sense to look at other uses for the land. In addition to farming, the couple routinely hosted youth groups from other countries and many of the trees lining the front drive and around the house were planted to commemorate the occasions.

But Williams, 82, said the times, the surrounding community and the business of agriculture are different.

"It's all about change,'' said Williams, who shut down the dairy part of the farm 15 years ago and raises corn and soybeans. "This is now a small farm, and with the changes in agriculture and the way the surrounding community is changing, it no longer makes sense to continue as a farm.''

Not only are modern farms much larger, but Williams points to the existing homes nearby and the fact that more are on the way.

"Cows, crops and condos don't mix,'' Williams said. "What was here before it was a farm? It was once forest and then it changed and became a farm. Just as the community is changing, it's time for this land to change.''

Sports City, 4141 Linglestown Road, Harrisburg, PA 17112Sports City - 4141 Linglestown Road, Harrisburg, PA 17112

LOWER PAXTON TOWNSHIP, PA -- The same developer planning the Forest Hills Commons retail/restaurant center in Lower Paxton Township is now offering sale or lease of the Sports City building, across the street, for synergistic, low-cost opportunities to locate on the booming Linglestown Road corridor.

One tenant, the popular Kimlee Vietnamese Restaurant, will stay, said owner Eric Kessler, of Vanguard Realty Group. The  Capital Area Soccer Association, is "not sure if they're going to remain after this year," Kessler said, so he will seek another long-term tenant to join the Kimlee Restaurant.

Kessler said construction will soon begin on his Forest Hills Commons across the street from Sports City and is expected to start leasing in spring 2019. The new shopping center is meant to attract restaurants, a bank, a cellphone company, and a small boutique grocer – locally based neighborhood services for the 2,550 families living in Blue Mountain communities, Kessler said. The location's proximity to residents traveling past several times a day makes it attractive to retailers.

The site offers an opportunity for a business hoping to capitalize on the rising visibility of Linglestown Road, also known as Route 39, said RSR Realtors CEO Jim Koury. RSR is also involved in marketing Forest Hills Commons.

"It's rare to see an existing building with so much potential become available just as new development is underway nearby," Koury said. "The synergies are tremendous. When Forest Hills Commons comes online, RSR will help businesses seeking all the advantages new construction can offer, while the Sports City complex offers affordable flex space in the heart of one of the region's strongest growth corridors."

The Sports City property, built in 1972 and with systems refurbished in 2005-06, offers proximity to the same demographic, but at lower rates in tune with older construction. The highest and best use could be a discount retailer, Kessler said. Other possible uses for the 47,000-square-foot property include distribution or wholesale center.

Sports City offers:

  • Newer electric, gas furnaces, bathrooms, HVAC roof units, and parking lot, all from the 2005-06 renovations.
  • 36-foot ceilings.
  • 198 parking spaces.
  • Build-to-suit and ground lease possibilities.

"The Linglestown corridor features growing communities,'' Kessler said. "That's where people live, and that's where retailers want to be."
