Harristown Development Corporation chose Mowery as the general contractor for the largest historic rehabilitation residential project in downtown Harrisburg in recent years. Benmar, at 116 and 124 Pine Street, was a group of former office buildings that contained a combined 80,000-square-feet of space and included an opportunity for 74 new residential rental units. Plus, on the first floor of 116 Pine was Alicia’s Deli and a first-floor retail space was planned for 124 Pine Street.
