222 Chestnut Street is a prime development site in Harrisburg’s Central Business District. It is a corner lot with frontage on both Chestnut & S. Third Streets.

In 2017 Harrisburg University of Science and Technology announced the selection of this site as the location for its new academic tower. Vartan Group, Inc. handled the sale.

222 Chestnut Street boasts easy access to the Harrisburg Transportation Center, and its central location is walkable to all amenities and destinations throughout downtown, from Riverfront Park, to the UPMC Pinnacle Harrisburg Hospital, to the Capitol Complex.

It is one of the only available properties for development in the Central Business District, and a rare opportunity for new construction with the type of large floor plate required by modern users. The existing zoning permits a wide variety of uses.

All utilities are available onsite via existing infrastructure. An existing CAT public transit route serves this corridor. It is located outside the 500-year flood zone.

The property is currently used as a commercial parking lot with 99 valet spaces for daily and monthly customers.
