Description
- Planned residential condos in Uptown would have demolished the three brick-and-stone manors between 2901 and 2917 N. Front St. The project is being financed by developer Mary Knackstedt.

- Condos would be 57 feet high on a 23,445-square-foot footprint, with underground parking for 146 cars, 32-unit luxury condominiums, total cost of $30 million. The condos would have approached 4,000 square feet and sell for $1 million or more. None would be smaller than 2,220 square feet.

- Opposition to the project from area residents forced the city to originally deny it, stating: "The demolition of charming 1920s-era mansions in favor of new development could have opened the door for other such projects, threatening Harrisburg's historic character."

- In December 2005, Harrisburg City Council refused to give Knackstedt permission to start the project, citing concerns about traffic, zoning and a lack of landscaping and lighting plans.

- Concerns over the impact of a condominium complex on the neighborhood's image were also cited. Knackstedt's legal team has filed a petition in Dauphin County Court seeking a ruling that would approve her plans.
