Condos to be built at 21st and Main

Thursday, June 27, 2013 by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Local News

Northampton Borough Council was informed at a recent meeting the vacant tract of land located off 21st and Main streets will be used to build 40 condominiums called Cross Country Apartments.

Borough council previously granted approval for the project.

Attorney James Preston, counsel for Posh Properties, Bethlehem Township, told council a condo association will be created.

Condo owners can sell but not rent their units. This eased concerns of some borough officials.

In response to a question from Councilman Ed Pany, Preston said he knows of no environmental issues at the site, where a clothing manufacturing plant was once located.

When asked when construction of the condo development will take place, Preston said he was unsure.

Borough Solicitor William McCarthy said all fees involving the project have been paid.

These include a $24,000 recreation fee, a $56,400 sewer tapping fee and another $70,000 for a highway occupancy permit.

The development is located the rear of a CVS pharmacy and the Redner's Market and gas station.
