Glendon Business Center
is a 34 acre light industrial-office development
located one-half mile from the Easton, Pennsylvania
exit of I-78 and two miles east of the I-78 and Route 33 interchange
which allows direct access to I-80. This project is the first
industrial park along I-78 in Pennsylvania
from the New Jersey border. The project is contiguous to and
has visibility from I-78.
The development concept for Glendon Business Center
contemplates constructing approximately 400,000 square feet
of buildings for build-to-suit for sale or lease, as follows:
Lot 10: approved for 60,000 square foot building on 5.1364

Glendon Business Center has available a
real estate tax abatement program (“LERTA”)
offered by the Wilson Area School District, the Borough of
Glendon and the County of Northampton. This LERTA
program encourages new building construction by significantly
reducing the real estate taxes on new construction.
The installed infrastructure includes public water (supplied
by Easton Suburban Water Authority); public sanitary sewer
collection line and two pumping stations (Glendon
Business Center has an allocation of 47,000 gallons
of sewer treatment capacity per day in the regional sewer
treatment plant); gas provided by UGI installed along Hilton
Street West; electricity supplied by Met-Ed, a First Energy
Company; fiber optic telecommunications provided by Verizon;
storm sewers and curbing along Hilton Street West and a detention
pond for the project on Lot 12; and Hilton Street West.
Glendon Business Center consists of 18 lots.
Lots 11 and 12 were sold to the adjoining property owner.
Lot 12 is a detention basin for the entire development and
is to be maintained by the owner of Lot 12.
