Easton broke ground for the new, three-story, 138,800 s/f TransportationCenter Garage. The structure is the first phase of a two-phase, Easton City Hall and Transportation Cen- ter public development project located in downtown Easton, an Eastern Pennsylvania town of 27,000. The garage will sup- port the second phase of the project, which will include the City of Easton’s new City Hall building, retail facilities, and a public transportation center. Spillman Farmer designed the $31-million, 183,800 s/f mixed- use complex. “This garage is the latest in the series of urban develop- ment projects that are making our city safer, more beautiful, and more successful. We are looking forward to the eco- nomic opportunities a new City Hall complex will bring to Easton,” Easton Mayor Salvatore Panto, Jr. said. “We are also excited to have Spillman Farmer on board.” Spillman Farmer design principal Joseph N. Biondo, AIA explained that the suc- cess of the project’s design is a result of integrated plan- ning efforts by the design and consultant team, the City of Easton, the Easton Planning Department, the Redevelop- ment Authority of Easton, the Historic District Commission of Easton, The Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority (LANta), and Trans- Bridge Lines. “The Lehigh Val- ley has unique opportunities for historical value and new growth to exist side by side, providing the kind of infra- structure, built environment, and social context that will continue to draw people to our area.” Biondo said. “The project will serve as a regional gateway at the conflu- ence of Delaware River and the Lehigh Canal. When designing the project, Spillman Farmer focused on restoring the site to its modern-day equivalent,” Biondo explained. “The city’s history of transportation and government has come full circle, and the site’s design will represent that milestone. The materials and design will reflect the creative, innova- tive, intellectual, cultural, and technological history that defines the region.” n
