Project description: The Gateway at Lackawanna is a mixed-use development that engages the community through a series of urban expressions. With 10,000 SF of commercial space on the first level and 160,000 SF of residential above, The Gateway aims to attract not only the city of Lackawanna, but also the surrounding communities. Ground floor commercial space will provide needed services to the community. The residential above will provide a healthy mix of studios, one bedrooms and two bedrooms. The intention is to encourage more density but not at the expense of comfort. At an 850 SF average size, the residential units can provide a broad range to accommodate young professionals, the manufacturing workforce, and families. Parking will be provided on the ground floor for retail and residents, a courtyard in the center of the building on the second floor will provide residents a private amenity, and a rooftop terrace will provide eyes on the street along with a state of the art club room for residents.
Located at the foot of the the central business district, The Gateway will act as a catalyst for future urban development throughout Lackawanna. By creating highly visible and attractive commercial spaces, job opportunities and careers will be at the forefront of the development.
The construction aspect of the development would provide jobs to approximately 100 on-site contractors for a duration of 18 months. The finished development, which includes 10,000 SF of commercial space would provide enough to permanently employee nearly 100 people. The residential portion of the property would house over 160 people in the complex. All of the new density to the area would provide additional revenue to local businesses, taxes to the City of Lackawanna, and a positive impact to the overall economic activity.
