CRANBERRY and MARSHALL TWPS — Two buildings in the Thorn Hill Industrial Park that borders the townships have been sold.

Regional Industrial Development Corporation of Southwestern Pennsylvania sold the Commonwealth Manor I and II buildings to Elmhurst Group. The sale price for both buildings was $14.25 million.

According to a release from RIDC, Commonwealth Manor I is a 45,900 square foot building that was constructed in 1977. Commonwealth Manor II is a 60,300 square foot space added in 1987. Over the years, the company estimates the cost of construction and improvements to be $9.13 million.

The buildings are about 80 percent occupied, and current tenants will remain in place moving forward. Tenants include Kadmon Pharmaceuticals, Zembelli Fireworks, ECM Pharmaceuticals, Dyson, Microbac and RDS.

According to a release, RIDC will continue to own the multi-tennant Thorn Hill Corporate Center in the park, which houses Verizon as an anchor tenant.

That is in addition to the 96,000 square foot Commons, and the 60,000 square-foot Heights at Thorn Hill flex building.
