A Florida developer wants to build a $59 million development, including restaurants, shopping, hotels and offices, on 84 vacant acres in Fairview Township.
Boca Raton-based Elysian Partners has proposed a development called Fairview Crossroads, which could consist of multiple buildings.
The site is north of Lewisberry Road, near the exit of Interstate 83 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
The thousands of cars traveling the Turnpike and I-83, including York County residents heading to jobs in Harrisburg and New Cumberland, make the site a “unique” location for this type of development, said Kevin Brown, a partner at Elysian Partners.

Elysian has developed several projects in southcentral Pennsylvania including Cumberland Technology Park in Mechanicsburg and Broadcasting Square shopping center in Wyomissing.
Traffic improvements associated with the project include creating a single-lane roundabout on Lewisberry Road and the ramp to I-83 south. The plan also includes widening Lewisberry Road to the north to create a turning lane off the I-83 interchange.
Construction is scheduled to begin in 2019, or perhaps 2018, pending approvals from Fairview Township. Elysian expects to file a land development plan with the township later this year, Brown said.
The first buildings would open in 2019. It’s premature to talk about possible tenants at this point, Brown said.

Fairview Crossroads is expected to generate 720 construction jobs and 550 direct permanent jobs.
The project is slated to generate about $3.6 million in local and state taxes annually.
