WRT’s STRATA Projects and the Downtown Allentown Revitalization District Nominated for the ULI Global Awards for Excellence

The Downtown Allentown Revitalization District, which is home to WRT’s three STRATA projects, has been nominated for an Urban Land Institute (ULI) Global Award for Excellence. 


The STRATA luxury apartment buildings are part of the new pedestrian path, the ArtsWalk, in Allentown. There are two STRATA buildings completed in Center City Lehigh Valley, STRATA I (West) and STRATA II (East), with STRATA Symphony currently in the construction process.

STRATA West and East have over 200 studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartment units with a variety of amenities including rooftop terraces, yoga rooms, outdoor courtyards and a dog park, in addition to retail space on the ground level.

The STRATA buildings are one of many new projects that make up the $500 million spent to revitalize Allentown to make it more desirable for millennials and empty-nesters to live, work, and play. STRATA III (Symphony) will build on the success of STRATA I & II by following a similar development model; the project will add to the City’s continued efforts to revamp Center City Lehigh Valley.

Each year, ULI’s Global Awards for Excellence nominate twenty-five developments from around the world that promote responsible land use and make use of community longevity and sustainability.
