PPL Freeing Up 32,000 SQFT of NIZ Land

Good news for downtown Allentown. This will open up some space for another skyscraper:

After the building is demolished, the three-quarter-acre property will be retained for future use by PPL or sold. Hoerner said that decision will be made within a week. If PPL has no further use for it, the company intends to “aggressively market” it for sale. It is in Allentown’s Neighborhood Improvement Zone, which should attract developers. He said PPL is not interested in holding on to a piece of vacant land for a long time to see if its value will increase: “We want to see the property returned to use.”
