Creating an Atmosphere


The Waterfront Comes to Life

The Waterfront is the only development site in the Lehigh Valley that provides panoramic water views and direct access to the Lehigh River. Nestled alongside the western bank of the river, the $300 million development consists of 26 acres of mixed-use space comprised of state-of-the-art office buildings, luxurious residences and a lively new restaurant and retail district. The Waterfront will also be a new place for the Valley to discover open space plazas brimming with events and vitality, a vibrant walking and riding path along the river, and a new way to reconnect with the water and the surrounding natural environment.

The up and coming development is located within Allentown’s “Neighborhood improvement Zone”, otherwise known as the “NIZ”, which allows site developers to offer the highest quality space at reduced rental rates. For more information on the NIZ, visit our page here.

Master Plan

The Waterfront master plan was designed by Cope Linder Architects in order to maximize the synergies between the project’s numerous uses while offering tenants, residents and visitors alike an entirely new experience.
