A piece of land in Camp Hill that for years was the proposed space for a Chick-Fil-A restaurant that was ultimately rejected, has been leased to another company.
Chase Bank has leased space at the corner of Chestnut and 32nd Streets, according to Bennett Williams Commercial Real Estate.
Chase Bank has nearly 100 branch locations in Pennsylvania but doesn’t have any locations in the Harrisburg area.
No further information is available at this time.
No land development plans have been submitted for this project, according to county records. In fact there hasn’t been a land development plan proposed for any project in Camp Hill in more than 2 years, according to the borough’s planning commission agendas as well as county records.
Five older vacant homes at this property were razed in the summer of 2019.
For more than two years, Wormleysburg-based developer Consolidated Properties tried to bring a Chick-fil-A to the prominent corner property. Chick-fil-A had leased the property but the lease was terminated after the developer was unable to complete the land development.
The proposal of the Chick-fil-A faced fierce opposition from neighbors. Last year a Cumberland County judge upheld Camp Hill borough council’s December 2019 denial of land development plans.
A major problem for Chick-fil-A was that the corner property was deemed too close to the intersection to permit entrances and exits off of 32nd Street, which carries Routes 11/15 through that portion of the West Shore. That meant all exiting traffic would be steered onto Chestnut, which residents saw as a direct threat to their quality of life.
Chase Bank has more than 4,700 branches and more than 16,000 ATMs.
