“It’s a prominent place to be, and it makes a great statement about our presence in the Harrisburg market,” Stephen C. Gierasch, co-managing shareholder of the office, said of the new space. Buchanan, which boasts the largest State Government Relations Practice in Pennsylvania, announced in early 2011 that it planned to move into the new building. Gierasch added, "We are committed to the future of this region, and as business leaders in this community, we are proud to play a significant role in investing in its growth."

Harrisburg-based WCI Partners led the $7 million construction project, which includes a geothermal heat system and other green features, and is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council as seeking a Gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Designation (LEED) rating.
