The William Elek Limited building at 128 E. Third St. at the corner of Webster Street in South Bethlehem has been vacant since the plumber retired.
Within one mile of this 7,500-square-foot building, according to Kathy Vossough, the city’s deputy director of economic development, there are 25,000 residents, 9,326 households, 1,128 daytime employees and an annual 2010 consumer spending of $233,181,000.
That's in the heart of the bustling SouthSide arts and entertainment downtown.
“Unfortunately, I think the building, while it looks maintained well from the outside, simply blends in, and is not one that is noticeable with its current façade, but has great potential for visibility with a small facelift,” Vossough said.
