A $7 million luxury apartment project is gearing up for a spring opening in Bethlehem Township.
Cahill Properties LLC of Easton is developing NorthPark Apartments at 2000 Meyer Lane off William Penn Highway.
Two buildings are up with siding installed and pre-leasing is expected to begin in March, said Dan Cahill, project manager. The apartments should be ready to open in May, he said.
Each building will have 24 units, for a total of 48, he said. Both buildings will be three stories and include elevators and a courtyard in the middle with a fire pit.
The property will have four types of units, all will have extended balconies, Cahill said.
NorthPark Apartments will have single-bedroom units, single units with an office/den and two-bedroom units. Rents will be market competitive, from $1,300 to $1,700, Cahill said.
Other amenities include a fitness center and multipurpose room.
The apartments also will have gas heat, high efficiency hot water, electric ovens, self-closing cabinets and granite countertops. The site will have on-street parking and eight garages.
Another added feature is a package concierge which allows tenants to receive text messages when a package is delivered to their locker at the apartment complex, where they can pick it up.
“A lot of these apartment complexes don’t have an answer for that,” Cahill said.
Wi-Fi controlled thermostats and universal serial bus (USB) outlets also will be available.
The apartments will be pet-friendly and offer a pet spa and dog pen, he said.
“We are really banking on our location,” Cahill said. “We are trying to market this as a small gem next to Bethlehem Municipal Park.”
The park includes a volleyball area, ball fields and a trail.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation park and ride lot, a self-storage facility, Farmersville Elementary School and a child care center are nearby.
Shane Patrick Associates Inc. of Allentown is the construction firm, while R+D Architecture of Easton designed the project. A.T. Hobel Excavating of Orefield performed site work.
Keller Williams Realty is leasing the units.
Robert J. Cahill, Dan Cahill’s father, is the president and managing partner of Meyer Lane Apartments LLC, which is the owner of the property.
