Allentown’s Newest Destination

The Waterfront is more than just a place to live and work: the dynamically planned mixed-use campus flawlessly integrates both retail and restaurant space along Waterfront Drive and the site’s signature River Walk: both areas working together to bring the Lehigh River to life.

Each of the twelve new buildings at The Waterfront will offer first floor retail and restaurant space; with more than 100,000 square feet of retail and 40,000 square feet of restaurant programmed into the site The Waterfront can accommodate operations both large and small. Waterfront Drive, the site’s main throughway, was designed with retail and restaurant in mind: by integrating pull-in parking on both sides of the main street the designers maximized storefront exposure while maximizing parking quantity and ease. The Waterfront, between all office tenants and The Waterfront Management Company, is projected to employ more than 2,900 individuals on site and house more than 750 residents between the three proposed apartment complexes.

The prime location just off a number of major highways, together with the incredible benefits of Allentown’s unique Neighborhood Improvement Zone, The Waterfront can offer potential retail and restaurant tenants incredible water views within an urban core all at unbelievable achievable rental rates.
