We know that this is the one-and-only site being offered in Harrisburg's bid; what we don't know is what types of financial incentives were included in the submitted proposal. Seems like wishful thinking to me, but if nothing else, this exercise shows what huge potential that site would have, should the right investor come along.

The biggest positive that I think will come from the HQ2 bid is that for the first time I can remember the entire region, minus Cumberland County Commissioners of course(remember Corridor One), worked together to do something positive.
