Scott Enterprises Announces ‘Harbor Place’ a Vision and Plan for Erie’s Bayfront


Erie, PA (November 27, 2013) – Scott Enterprises Erie, PA, is excited to present its vision and plan for Erie’s downtown bayfront.


In 1999, Scott purchased 12 acres of prime bayfront real estate at the northeast corner of State Street and the Bayfront Parkway (the former Penelec site). Over the past year, Scott Enterprises has been working with Weber Murphy Fox Architects to produce a dynamic mixed-use development plan, Harbor Place, that will change the face of Erie’s bayfront. Destination Erie has declared the Scott site as ‘Ground Zero’ for the revitalization of downtown Erie.


Harbor Place will be built in phases and will include corporate offices, hotels, retail shops, parking garages, an outdoor ice skating rink, condominiums, and apartments. A skywalk will connect the complex to UPMC Hamot Hospital, allowing quick, covered access for patients and staff. A second skywalk is planned for the Bayfront Highway at State Street. Scott Enterprises is working with Hilton on the first hotel property and recently purchased the liquor license from ‘Under the Clock Restaurant’ for a restaurant to be developed within the plan. Harbor Side hotel will cost over $150 million dollars upon completion and will create hundreds of construction jobs, as well as employment opportunities at the complex.
“Simply put, this is a game-changer for our community. Our downtown needs an economic boost and this visionary project does just that,” said Nick Scott Sr., President of Scott Enterprises.
