Another spineless city official conveniently neglects to pull his head out of the sand.

Another step forward for the revitalization of this city. 700 more quality jobs. We can thank Ed Pawlowski for businesses flocking to be apart of his brilliantly conceived City Center project.

The former First National Bank building, at the heart of the city's downtown at Seventh and Hamilton streets, will be torn down as early as next month.

In its place, Reilly's City Center Lehigh Valley will establish Two City Center, a new six-story building with a restaurant at street level and five floors of office space employing more than 700 people.

700 quality full time jobs at this one office building.

Business attracts business. Which will lead to Allentown producing more of these jobs in the future.

You guys believe JP Really and the band aid boys?

Why I heard a little over a year ago Ed was trying his darnedest to sell that very building to the ASD for some specialty high school BS.

Which way do I go? Which way do I go?

Don't know what they want to do. Also the capacity for jobs is not the same as filling the jobs or renting the building. This government driven economic de-habilitation is cursed.

Why all of a sudden would everyone want to come to Allentown? Hockey? No I bet it is the tax benefits that will fall on the backs of the residents of Allentown.

Glad to see the crew is out there up the bu**s of their flavorite polyticians.

Pud et al are already looking for ways to divert social security and medicare funds to their plethora of delusional developments.

Kool AId is free. I guess this is what happens when misguided souls get anxious that the status quo is abhout to blunder. It is called panic.

Anything to show some momentum. I wonder how many times Pud et al get together to watch Field of Scvhemes?
