The former D&H Distributing headquarters on Seventh Street in Harrisburg has been sold to Hudson Companies of Mercer County in Hermitage for $4.75 million, according to RSR, Realtors of Lemoyne.
Hudson Companies will demolish the current structure and build a new one that will be leased to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
D&H Distributing last fall moved into new headquarters at 100 and 200 Tech Drive in Lower Paxton Twp.
According to RSR, Realtors, the old headquarters at 2525 N. Seventh St. will be replaced with a 120,000-square-foot, three-story building that will be leased to the state to house the Pennsylvania Departments of General Services, Human Services and Office of Administration. Those offices are currently located in multiple locations. About 850 employees will work there. There will be more than 1,000 parking spaces.
D&H had operated out of the North Seventh Street building since 1952. The new 50-acre location has two buildings, 240,000 square feet of office space and 950 parking spaces.
The new building has a unique feature – a spiral slide known as the “Main Street Express” in the lobby that reaches from the second floor down to the first. It also has an amphitheater-style lobby known as “Main Street”, which has stadium-style seating for around 100 people and a large scale video wall.
D&H is also building a 745,200-square-foot warehouse in Lower Swatara Twp. with 452 parking spaces and 118 trailer parking spaces.
