ALLENTOWN | Landmark Tower | 128m | 420ft | 33 fl | Pro



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New tower in Allentown, Pa, just north of Philadelphia, in the early stages of development by developer Bruce Loch.

Quote:
At 350 feet, the new structure would stand taller than the vacant Martin Tower, the former headquarters of Bethlehem Steel, and PPL Tower, a block to the north and the city's tallest, Loch said.

If the Martin Tower is vacant, why build a whole new tower?

Lehigh Valley Live

Quote:
Allentown high-rise developer says there's room in the real estate market



By Gregg Bortz | The Express-Times

For developer Bruce Loch, his sky-high vision of a Center City Allentown office tower culminates a 30-year dream.

Loch is proposing to build the Lehigh Valley’s tallest building, the 33-story Landmark Tower, at North Ninth and West Walnut streets in the city. It’s a renewal of a plan he first envisioned in 1985 but scuttled a few years later as the economy trailed off, he said.

Now, in hopes of an economic revival both nationally and in Allentown -- and with the financing of the city’s special tax zone -- his plans are rising again. He found the opportunity when the Allentown Parking Authority sought bids for a parcel of land next to its parking garage at Ninth and Walnut.

And he hopes to secure funding for the $60 million project because the site is part of the city’s Neighborhood Improvement Zone, which diverts new state and local non-property taxes toward development in a 127.3-acre zone that covers Center City and waterfront property along the Lehigh River. “The NIZ zone makes it a lot easier,” Loch said of getting his project off the ground.

Seymour “Sy” Traub, chairman of the Allentown Neighborhood Improvement Zone Development Authority, said his organization has yet to be contacted with the proposal. “I learned about it in the newspapers,” Traub said. “We’re very pleased that people are interested in further developing the downtown.”

Dietrick Group

September 27

Introducing: 90 S. 9th. A 33-story high-rise - the tallest building is 65 counties - in downtown Allentown. Construction starts in 2014, and Dietrick Group is now LEASING! We're talking a two-story penthouse restaurant, two dozen floors of office space, apartments and ground-floor retail. Landmark Tower will be the heart of Downtown Allentown, and the new gem in the Lehigh Valley skyline.

ALLENTOWN | Landmark Tower | 128m | 420ft | 33 fl | Pro

Construction to start on 33-story Allentown Landmark Tower in fall, developer says
Quote:
Construction will start this fall on the 33-story Allentown Landmark Tower, which will be Pennsylvania's tallest building outside of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, the developer said.

Ascot Circle Realty recently purchased the land and air rights it needs to build the tower at Ninth and Walnut streets and plans to start construction in the fourth quarter of the year, Ascot President Bruce Loch said Thursday.

Ascot is close to signing both office and retail tenants for the building, which will include 24 floors of offices and two floors of retail, Loch said.

"We're talking to a number of tenants that any one of them could fill the entire office space," Loch said.

The building's upper seven floors will be condominiums, which Loch said he would price for sale after the office tenants are obtained. The building will likely have 20 large, high-end condominiums and all will be higher than the 24-story PPL Building, Loch said.

"You're going to have unobstructed views in four directions," he said. "They're going to be pretty exclusive."

The tower will take between 18 and 21 months to construct and should be done by the end of 2017, Loch said.

They should have placed the garage underground or at least place street level retail...

I think it is a great design, but the garage does need some retail to make it more inviting. Nice to see the Penn Power and Light Tower will finally have a buddy in the skyline!
