Riverside Bliss

DevelopmentMaster Plan

The Waterfront mixed-use campus was specifically designed to flawlessly integrate Class A office space, modern holistic living options, with an active main street promenade lined with bustling retail and restaurant locations. The goal is to attract thousands of visitors to The Waterfront each year with dynamic outdoor programming and entertainment along with seasonal festivities. With location in mind, the developers naturally turned to the region’s key underutilized asset and undeveloped opportunity: the Lehigh River.

The signature Riverwalk was designed first as a unique destination providing the only place individuals can directly access the Lehigh River from a mixed-use lifestyle campus. Part of the River Walk splendor is a half-mile garden-lined pathway that brings new life to the banks of the Lehigh River while offering pristine water vistas and relaxing garden views for the buildings surrounding it.

In addition to developing a beautiful new district, The Waterfront creates new jobs and working opportunities within Allentown’s urban limits. Given the ideal location along with Allentown’s unique Neighborhood Improvement Zone, six office buildings ranging from six to eight stories were strategically located directly adjacent to the River Walk. The first three constructed buildings (560 Waterfront Drive, 615 Waterfront Drive, and 645 Waterfront Drive) were purposefully designed with floor to ceiling windows in order to maximize the overall views of the river.

Along with sprawling modern office space, the residential complexes include three apartment buildings, each with unique design elements and technology advancements. Altogether the campus offers a portfolio of 554 market-rate apartments to choose from. 630 Waterfront Drive and 730 Waterfront Drive each offer relaxing interior courtyards and reserved parking for residents, while 830 Waterfront Drive offers dynamic views of the Furnace Street Plaza and the Lehigh River beyond.

In addition to the incredible amount of living and office space, there are more than 2,900 parking spots available in three on-site parking structures, more than 800 spaces reserved for pull-in parking opportunities, as well as a number of surface lots to accommodate office staff and residents. There is plenty of parking for visitors alike who enjoy the two on-site programmable plazas (Allen and Furnace Streets), which include a number of open-air amphitheaters and rain gardens that offer constantly changing entertainment.

With a robust amount of exciting entertainment, there are also retail and restaurant spaces programmed into each of the twelve new buildings. These properties give small business owners a variety of space layouts that will accommodate their particular business needs. Spacious dining decks are built into each of the riverside buildings in order to give eager restaurateurs the opportunity to provide their guests with the finest in riverside dining options.
