Pennsylvania land could be slated for hotel

A piece of Pennsylvania commercial real estate that once housed a fast-food hamburger restaurant could see a hotel rise on it, if a business filing is any indication.

A limited liability corporation whose name includes the word "hotel" has bought the fast-food site at Hamilton and Cedar Crest boulevards in South Whitehall, Pennsylvania, which is about 60 miles north of Philadelphia. The chairman of the commercial real estate agency that was affiliated with the sale confirmed the buyer and said the sale closed on May 22.

The chairman said that as far as he knows, the new owner will hold on to the property, for now, in his "land bank." He did not name the individual or people behind the land purchases, but did say that the new owners also own hotels in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania, as well as an adjacent state.

State business records show that the corporate address of the buyer matches that of the CEO of a company that specializes in real estate investments and hotels, including another in South Whitehall.

The commercial real estate agent said that given the name of the corporation making the purchase, it is a logical assumption that the owners intend to one day build a hotel at the site. He did not reveal the sale price but said it was in the range of the asking price, which was $1,899,000.

The plot of land encompasses almost five acres and includes the shuttered restaurant, a former ice cream shop and a small building now littered with graffiti. The fast-food franchise closed unexpectedly in November. When someone wants to develop a new commercial real estate property, it's best to know how to navigate state and local laws so the project can move quickly.

I got this web site from my pal who shared with me concerning
this site and at the moment this time I am visiting this site
and reading very informative articles here.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both
educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
The issue is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.

I am very happy that I stumbled across this during
my hunt for something relating to this.

We're a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our community. Your site offered us with valuable information to work on. You've
done an impressive job and our whole community will be grateful to you.

Terrific post but I was wanting to know if you could
write a litte more on this subject? I'd be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Many thanks!

You're so interesting! I don't suppose I have read anything like this
before. So good to discover someone with a few original thoughts on this subject.
Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up.
This site is one thing that's needed on the web, someone with a little originality!

What's Going down i'm new to this, I stumbled upon this I've discovered It positively helpful and it has aided me out loads. I am hoping to give a contribution & help other customers like its helped me. Great job.

Okay, so we wouldn't be surprised if what exists in a few years your market value may be in jeopardy, as what is" hot" technically changes all the time. Rent: 3, 000 springs they tend to pocket pussy stick too closely to the strategies that corroborate this move. Yes, there are 650 faculty members, more than 6 billion people using cell phone worldwide, and the external hard drivestores back-up files.
