Plans call for warehouse beside new UPS hub on North Union at quarry site

Posted

Plans for a warehouse in the 2000 block of North Union Street will be before the Lower Swatara Township planning commission Thursday.

The warehouse is proposed to be 246,400 square feet, on land next to the future UPS distribution hub.

The land development and subdivision plans were submitted by Byler Quarries LLC. Byler did not return a request for comment.

Based in Lebanon, Byler describes itself as a family business that owns and operates companies in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware. It began as a golf course business, and Byler owns five golf clubs and courses.

The company provides ready-mixed concrete to central Pennsylvania and sand and gravel to the Mid-Atlantic region.

According to the plans, the land is currently Fiddlers Ridge Quarry, 2090 N. Union St., and Byler is proposing the use the land as both a quarry and warehouse.

The land is about 111 acres. Byler proposes to subdivide 19 acres on which to build the warehouse.

Access to the site would be off North Union Street.

Truck parking would be north of the building, with car parking to both the north and east. Byler is proposing 97 truck parking stalls and 169 parking spaces.

The UPS facility is to be a 775,033-square-foot “super-hub.”
