Demolition on Allentown Waterfront to begin July 24

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Demolition will begin July 24 for the Waterfront project in Allentown.

The demolition will clear buildings located in the thirteen acres south of the Tilghman Street Bridge that developers are calling "phase one."

This will leave room for the project's first building, 615 Waterfront Drive, an eight story office building with first floor retail.

Phase one will also include three other office buildings, one apartment complex and a parking deck.

The Waterfront is a $300 million development project along the Lehigh River.

"The Waterfront will transform twenty-six acres of prime land within Allentown into a vibrant mixed-use campus while bringing thousands of new job opportunities, hundreds of new apartments, a shopping and dining district, and a half-mile River Walk with direct river access," Mark W. Jaindl, president of Jaindl Properties, one of the developers of the Waterfront, said in a statement released Wednesday.

Dunn Twiggar Company and Michael Dunn Co. are also involved in the Waterfront development.
