Bringing Life to the Banks of the Lehigh
The Allen Street Plaza, located in Phase I of The Waterfront development, introduces outdoor areas for daily programming, nightly entertainment and seasonal festivals. Hardscaped surfaces and functional seating provide an ideal location to enjoy a mid-day lunch break, a nice afternoon by the water, or an evening stroll among many other uses.
In effort to callback to the site’s industrial past, numerous crane runs have been preserved, and rehabilitated to lend a special aesthetic element to the site. During the Spring, Summer and Fall months the Allen Street Plaza will be fully programmed to give local musicians and artists a chance to entertain the whole family while the Winter months will offer holiday-styled decorations and entertainment.
The Allen Street Plaza is located adjacent to 615 Waterfront Drive and directly across Waterfront Drive from 560 Waterfront Drive. The plaza grants direct access to one of two floating docks at The Waterfront and opens the way to additional garden-lined pathways and outdoor amphitheaters provided along the project’s signature River Walk.
The Allen Street Plaza is scheduled to be constructed during the infrastructure improvements, which began on October 22, 2015. Full improvements are anticipated to take eighteen months, though building construction can occur simultaneously.
