Harkins is honored to receive an Excellence in Construction Eagle Award from ABC’s Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter for Strata East in Allentown, PA. The award was presented to the project team at ABC’s 27th Annual Awards of Excellence Gala, held on November 16th at Presidential Caterers in East Norriton, PA.

Strata East is the latest addition to the exciting development of downtown Allentown by City Center Lehigh Valley. It includes 67 luxury apartments, 60% of which are two-bedroom units and 40% one-bedroom units. The 98,500 gsf building is five stories tall, comprised of four stories of wood frame construction over a one-story steel and concrete podium. In addition, there are nine first-floor retail shops, totaling 11,000 sf of space, that face the Miller Symphony Hall on 6th Street.

City Center Lehigh Valley Project Manager Robert Dilorenzo sent this great note to the team:
