Lehigh Valley Health Network will lease a new three-story medical office building rising on Hamilton Boulevard, according to the building's developer.
The 45,000-square-foot building will have parking on the first floor and devote the next two levels to 30,000 square feet of office space, according to Ed Novak, owner of Novak Ventures Inc., the owner and general contractor on the building.
Since site preparation, the office building has been rising quickly on Hamilton Boulevard, not far from the intersection with Cedar Crest Boulevard.
Novak expects the building frame to be completed in early July. Interior and site work will follow. He said he expects the building will be finished by early December.
The stretch of Hamilton Boulevard where the office building is going up has been the site of much recent activity.
Hotel Hamilton LLC has purchased the land across the street, where a Burger King and video store once operated. The real estate company that handled the transaction said the land will be banked for now but that a hotel is likely to be constructed on the site.
Also in the block, another small office building will be constructed at the site of a former miniature golf business.
Also, jeweler Charles Paul Gem Designs closed after decades at the corner of Hamilton and Cedar Crest boulevards. No plans have been announced for that site.
