Core States Group Expands Its Footprint With Allentown, PA, Location

Core States Group, a nationally recognized firm that designs, builds, and manages multi-site programs and build-to-suit projects for some of the world's most notable brands, has announced their expansion into Allentown, PA. Core States Group's new office will open April 2023 at 520 Lofts on Hamilton Street, a mixed-use building designed by Bernardon, a division of Core States Group.

Core States Group's expansion into Allentown, the third-largest city and fastest-growing region in Pennsylvania, will be their fourth office in the state and 21st location in North America. This new location will allow for continued expansion of Core States Group's integrated divisions and service delivery throughout the region and nationally.

Along with the success of 520 Lofts - which was nationally recognized in 2019 for its outstanding architecture, creativity, and inventiveness by Multifamily Executive magazine - Core States Group has been involved with multiple programs for nationally known convenience store, retail banking, and restaurant brands as well as more than 30 projects in the Lehigh Valley, which include transformative developments such as 1010 Apartments, Cityplace South, Morning Call redevelopment, The Hive, The Gallery, Walnut Street Commons, and the Walnut Street Parking Garage.

"I am proud of the contributions the Bernardon team has made in the revitalized landscape of Allentown and the surrounding Lehigh Valley," said D. David Dugan, President and CEO, Core States Group. "The decision to expand was a logical next step for us as we continue to create a world where all environments improve everyday life."
