Mayor Robert Donchez, Senator Lisa Boscola and other dignitaries gather Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017 for the dedication of a 626-spot garage in south Bethlehem. The garage at New and Third streets has been billed as jumpstarting redevelopment in that section of the South Side Business District. The $17.4 million is connected to a six-story office building under construction next to it. That office building will be home to offices for St. Luke’s University Health Network and Lehigh University. There will also be first-floor commercial space. Motorists can sign up for monthly parking passes for the garage. It costs $65 a spot. The parking authority leases 180 spots to the developer for his tenants.

Architectural Facade Systems
Architects have chosen precast concrete architectural facades for more than half a century because they offer exceptional aesthetic and structural versatility, speed of enclosure, and durability. No other material combines the range of shapes, colors, and textures, fire-resistance, acoustical insulation, weather tightness, long-term durability, low maintenance, and rapid, IAQ-friendly enclosure.
CarbonCast® enables precast facades to be lighter, better insulating, and more durable. Using C-GRID® carbon fiber grid in lieu of steel mesh, CarbonCast makes precast ideal for cladding or enclosing lightweight steel-framed structures, high-rises, and buildings in poor soil or high-seismic zones.
When it comes to architectural cladding panels, High Concrete Group is the clear first choice.
