Pottsville Republican Herald – November 5, 2012

A residential development and commercial area are planned for the site of the former Deer Lake Drive-In along Route 61.

“The 110 single-family homes (are) probably about two years out ‘til they start construction on those,” Kirk Fanelli, vice president of Fanelli Group Properties, said last week.

Fanelli is developing 15 acres of the 60-acre site for commercial purposes.

The two-story homes will be 2,000 to 2,500 square feet. Although he didn’t know a precise cost, he said they might be in the $175,000 to $200,000 range.

Two businesses, Union Bank and Trust Co. and Geisinger-Orwigsburg, have signed 15-year leases for locations at the site, Fanelli said, adding that talks are ongoing with other potential businesses, which he declined to name.

The Union Bank site will be about 1 acre. The Geisinger Medical Center site will be about 3 acres, with the actual building about 17,000 square feet, “almost three times the size of the current facility in town,” Fanelli said.

I walked by today. Lower portion of marquee has been removed. All that remains is “Eagle” on three sides. Perhaps they’ll continue to use the name for the new business.
