Construction is underway on a planned medical office building on Hanover Avenue in Allentown across from the Allentown State Hospital.
The building is being constructed by Sage Design Build of Upper Macungie Township, for Pannenbier, a national developer of medical buildings that is based in Atlanta.
The 12,000-square-foot building is going up on a space that was formerly a used car lot and is in an area that hasn’t seen a great deal of development in recent years.
The shell of the building is expected to be complete by spring.
Other health care buildings developed by Pannenbier include Ohio General Hospital in Hillard, Ohio and UCHealth Broomfield Hospital in Broomfield, Colorado.
Details on the final tenant for the building have not yet been released.
