North Star Construction chosen to build Two City Center in Allentown

Local builder to construct mixed-use building in Allentown

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Officials are releasing more details about a key piece of the arena development project in Allentown.

They announced Friday that local builder North Star Construction has signed on to construct the mixed-used building, known as "Two City Center." It will be built across from the hockey arena site at 7th and Hamilton streets.

Plans are also in the works to expand the nearby parking garage at 6th and Linden streets.

Construction on the $50 million facility will start in December and should be wrapped up by the spring of 2014, officials said.

Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski said the revitalization project is good news for the entire region.

"This is really the beginning of a lot of great things that are going to be happening down here, which I think is not only going to transform Allentown, it's going to transform the entire Lehigh Valley," Pawlowski said.

Earlier this week, Boyertown, Berks Co.-based National Penn Bank announced that it was moving its headquarters to Allentown. It will occupy the top five floors at Two City Center.
