The Location3 Furnace Street Allentown, PA 18102
The Waterfront, to be built on the twenty-six-acre campus formerly home to the Lehigh Structural Steel company, is located on the western banks of the Lehigh in Allentown, Pennsylvania. For decades the site sat underutilized by a number of industrial tenants, effectively sealing the beautiful panoramic views of Allentown’s hidden gem: the Lehigh River.
The Tilghman Street Bridge passes over the midpoint of the project, distinguishing Phase I (all area south of the bridge) from Phase II (all area north of the bridge).
A key advantage to The Waterfront site is its accessibility: the project is approximately 90 seconds from the Fullerton exit off Route 22, approximately 10 minutes from the Airport Road exit off 22 via the new American Parkway Bridge, and about 15 minutes away from the Summit Lawn exit of Route 78 to the south. The Furnace Street entrance to The Waterfront is located 1.2 miles from the front gate of Allentown’s PPL Center (approximately a 7-minute commute via car or public transit.)
The Lehigh Valley is optimally located right between the Philadelphia (55 minutes) and New York City (90 minutes) metropolitan areas, and with major highways and trucking routes, it has been recognized as one of the fastest growing regions within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Allentown, the largest city in the region, is experiencing an economic renaissance: with more than $1 billion spent in new construction in the past two years within the urban limits alone.
The Waterfront, combining its ease of access, proximity to downtown, and unique riverside campus creates a perfect location for tenants, residents and visitors alike.
