In a stunning turn of events just a week after proposing a massive warehouse project in Centre County, with hundreds of jobs, the developer is now pulling the project notifying the county to withdraw the plans.
In this letter to the Centre County Planning and Community Development Office, the Bellefonte warehouse project, the Suncap Property Group, formally notifying the county they want the land development plan application to be withdrawn.
Last week, plans for the project unveiled. A one million square foot warehouse to be located in Benner Township, a few miles outside of Bellefonte with close to 700 jobs projected. But more details, specifically what company was backing the project remains a mystery.
The developer had a non disclosure agreement not to reveal the company, and earlier this week Centre County Commissioners speaking out asking for more information
“I have some concerns what this, what are they going to be warehousing, what are they going to be transporting, at a level that this is we deserve some answers as a community”
In a response to the developer, county planners say the company could still resubmit the plans at a later date.
