City Center Residential Announces Plans to Develop Apartment Community at 9th and Hamilton Streets

City Center Residential today announced plans to develop a 120-unit apartment building at 9th and Hamilton streets and a 78-unit addition to that building at 9th and Maple streets in downtown Allentown. The Allentown Planning Commission approved the project today.

City Center is converting the nine-story former Holiday Inn, the contents of which it donated to local nonprofits, into a residential tower known as Cityplace. Cityplace will be the company’s tallest residential building. An addition to the building’s south side will contain 78 additional apartments surrounding a courtyard. Cityplace will offer studio, one-bedroom and two apartments.

Cityplace’s design finishes and amenities will parallel the high-quality features City Center Residential properties are known for, but the building’s rental rates will be lower. Some of the unique features included in the adaptive reuse complex include:

  • Exposed concrete ceilings in the north tower.
  • Wood-plank luxury vinyl tile flooring throughout.
  • Ultra large windows with stunning city and mountain views.
  • More creative industrial feel than City Center Residential’s other properties.

The first floor will contain more than 20,000 square feet of office, retail and amenity space. Cityplace will also feature retail frontage on Hamilton Street and additional space on 9th Street. Residents will have direct access to the parking deck off Maple Street behind the building.

“Cityplace is our answer to those who want to live comfortably in a cool, urban setting and enjoy great amenities but at a lower price point,” said Zachary Sienicki, vice president of City Center Residential. “Cityplace will feel almost like a modern boutique hotel, offering a neat lobby, a resident lounge, a fitness center and attractive Juliet balconies along Hamilton Street.”

Construction at Cityplace is underway with move-ins planned to begin in the tower in early 2020 and in the addition in the fall of 2020. Follow the project at www.CityplaceAllentown.com or on Facebook and Instagram at @CityplaceAllentown.

City Center Residential is currently preleasing 95 apartments in phase one of Center Square Lofts at 8th and Walnut streets, which will begin welcoming residents in September of 2019.

To learn more about Center Square Lofts or join the preleasing list for Cityplace you can also call the City Center Residential Central Leasing Office on 610.841.2489.

City Center Residential’s existing communities in downtown Allentown include STRATA West, STRATA East, STRATA Symphony, 520 Lofts and Walnut Street Commons. The 437 apartments among those five buildings have been leased. Learn more about each of City Center’s residential communities in downtown Allentown at www.CityCenterAllentown.com/Residential.

Moved in a few months ago and love this place. I don't understand some of the other poor reviews.I highly recommend taking a tour of the place if you ever are looking for a place downtown.The Nines is super modern, very clean, and super convenient. Everyone has been super friendly and I think this place deserves a 5 star rating. Give it a tour if interested!

My boyfriend and I really enjoy living here. The tenants & staff are all super friendly. I live in The Nines, which I believe is one of the cheaper apartments. But I think for this area, what you get is amazing for the price. It can be scary walking home at night, (our garage is in the process of being built so it’s a 3 block walk right now) but once I reach the doors I feel extremely safe in my apartment building. The area is close to The Arts Walk, which has events and music pretty often, which is fun to walk to/around when bored. We only planned on living here for a year, but are considering staying longer because we enjoy it so much.

At the time of writing this review it is a 2.7 star average. I do not understand how is that the case, the building is excellent, the staff is extremely professional and friendly and I literally feel like I am in a hotel. I still don't believe that I live here. It's a well deserved 5 star review.

I’m excited to be the first review! I pre leased my studio apartment and just toured it yesterday! I was a little nervous about what to expect but everything turned out to be everything I expected and more! It was way better and bigger In person!! I fell in love with my studio right away! I love the 2 huge windows that overlook Hamilton Street and the fact that everything is brand new!! The kitchen is a perfect size and I just love the layout! The apartment theme decor is so cool and brings a unique city charm! The management and staff team is extraordinary and was super nice and professional! I’m also extremely excited about the phase two apartments being built next door because it includes all the amenities that we would also have access too!! I can tell the construction team is working really hard to get things done on time because everything looks amazing! Honestly, I loved everything about my experience and city place! I’m super excited about moving in!!! Definitely best choice I made so far! Would definitely recommend!!❤️❤️👍👍🤗🤗
