The final phase of the Bethlehem Greenway trail is going to get built soon, all the way down to Saucon Park, but I’m wondering when the first section of the trail is going to be completed, between the entrance on New St. and the area across the Banana Factory buildings on 3rd Street:
This matters because this area of the trail is going to run between the big new building on the corner of New and 3rd and the new BPA parking garage on New Street. I am encouraging everyone to think about what those buildings are going to look like from the vantage point of someone walking on the Greenway trail, instead of just the frontage on New Street, because whether the sides of the buildings look good from other angles (i.e. have wrap-around ground-floor retail) will impact development interest on the parcels next to Comfort Suites.
Also, just to put it out there, you gotta get rid of that Comfort Suites at some point. Those walls of dead space for pedestrians on 3rd Street and Brodhead Ave, gah!
