Waterfront Allentown – A dynamic new development is taking shape along the Lehigh River in Allentown, and Barry Isett & Associates is proud to be civil engineer and landscape architect of record. Developed by The Waterfront Redevelopment Partners LP, a partnership between Dunn Twigger Company LLC , Jaindl Properties LLC, and Michael Dunn Co. Ltd. the project will transform 26 industrial acres into a mixed-use riverfront community center on a new Waterfront Drive as a main street corridor. The Waterfront will feature 11 buildings encompassing over 700,000 SF of office space, 413 residential apartments, 108,000 SF of retail space and 39,000 SF of restaurant space. Several multi-level garages with retail first floor uses will integrate parking for over 2,800 cars. Isett is providing survey, site/civil design and permitting, landscape architecture, and traffic engineering.
The project will include walking trails along a half-mile of river frontage, a dynamic streetscape, two main plazas, encompassing more than seven acres. New boating facilities will be created along the Lehigh River to offer river access. The Riverwalk will be a vibrant programmed space offering venues for concerts, special events and functions overlooking the Lehigh River. The outdoor amphitheater, overlook plaza and trail will be developed in Phase 1. Native landscaping, ornamental lighting and traditional materials will replace the former asphalt paving of the industrial era. Re-use of the one overhead crane and rail will help to tell the story about this site’s former industrial use and relationship to the Valley’s steel heritage.
The project is located in Allentown’s Neighborhood Improvement Zone. Phase 1 of the project which includes construction of the south half of the site, received all permits and approvals and is currently under construction.Read More
