Mechanicsburg, Pa.

The Hampshire Companies, a full-service, private real estate investment firm with equity in assets valued at over $1.5 billion, has announced the acquisition of a 596,000-square-foot distribution/ office building located at 1225 South Market Street in Mechanicsburg, Pa. from Bookspan, the parent company of Doubleday Entertainment and Yes Solutions.

Situated on 101.71 acres, the two-story building is located within close proximity to I-76 and offers convenient access to the property via South Market Street and Route 114. This is Hampshire’s second major acquisition in Mechanicsburg, having acquired a 414,016-square-foot warehouse building at 180 Kost Road in late 2006.

“Bookspan will continue to occupy a portion of the office space under a long term lease. The balance of the building will be repositioned for a variety of tenants and users,” said Norman A. Feinstein, Executive Managing Director of The Hampshire Companies. “This acquisition was an excellent opportunity for us to strengthen our warehouse portfolio.”
