HELLERTOWN, Pa. -

Hellertown Borough Council approved Abe Atiyeh’s plans for a 31-unit independent living building behind Saucon Valley Manor, the exact site where Atiyeh previously planned on installing 16 condominiums.

The four-story building, located at 1050-1072 Main St., is intended for elderly residents only.

The plan was approved with the condition that the condo agreement include a provision restricting each unit to those 65 and older. Atiyeh must also conduct a parking study before construction may begin and pay a $96,000 recreation fee.
