Murphy & Dittenhafer Coordinating Plans for Former Griffith-Smith Building

Murphy & Dittenhafer Architects has been commissioned for design/planning work for the property at 45 West Market Street, the former Griffith-Smith menswear store.

Mashugana, LLC, who has executed an option to purchase the vacant and condemned building from the York City Redevelopment Authority, brought Murphy & Dittenhafer on board for architectural/engineering/site planning services to tear down the two-story rear portion, extend the existing parking capacity, and renovate the three-story, 6,914-square foot main section of the property.

Mashugana is in the process of securing a tenant for the building, but the entity envisions a street level restaurant that would add to the growing list of dining and retail amenities in downtown York.

Planning is underway for this West Market Street redevelopment project. Construction bids are being reviewed and a contractor will be selected in the near future, with an anticipated construction start in August or September.

Murphy & Dittenhafer Conducting Feasibility Study for Shippensburg University's Stewart Hall

Murphy & Dittenhafer Architects has been commissioned to design renovations and additions to adaptively reuse Stewart Hall, the original 1894 gymnasium structure on the campus of Shippensburg University.

The existing Stewart Hall historic gymnasium space with suspended “banked” running track will be converted to an event space and possibly the new home of the Department of Alumni Affairs.

The project budget is $3.9 million and the finished building will be 15,146 total square feet (original footage of 13,284, plus a proposed three-story addition of 1,862 square feet). Murphy & Dittenhafer is currently completing a preliminary concept design/feasibility study, and will begin to move forward with developing construction documents sometime in 2015.
