Vertical progress has started on a new warehouse at the site of the former Hotel Carlisle, bringing the arc of the distressed property to a close.
Middlesex Township issued a permit in October for a 380,069-square-foot warehouse and distribution center on the site at 1700 Harrisburg Pike, according to township zoning officer Mark Carpenter. Demolition of the dilapidated hotel and conference center occurred over the summer.
The property was repossessed by its mortgage holder two years ago, following a long bankruptcy battle with the property’s former owners.
New York investors David Embrahimzadeh and Felice DiSanza were ultimately investigated by the U.S. Department of Labor for failing to pay hotel employees prior to the facility being shuttered in early 2017, and were accused in court of being “serial filers” of limited-liability corporation bankruptcies for personal gain.

The hotel’s mortgage holder subsequently sold the site to a company listed as NP Carlisle Industrial, an affiliate of NorthPoint Development, a warehouse developer based out of the Kansas City, Missouri, area.
NorthPoint’s industrial portfolio consists of over 67.3 million square feet of leased warehousing and manufacturing space nationwide, according to the company’s website.
Mowery is the general contractor for the warehouse build, according to Middlesex Township records.
Embers Drive, which serves the Sheetz store in front of the former Hotel Carlisle site, as well as the distribution center on the north side of the pike, will be widened, and a traffic stacking lane added to the eastbound side of the Harrisburg Pike, Carpenter said.
