Bella Bridesmaids 1 Year Anniversary - Center Square Lofts

Bella Bridesmaids 1 Year Anniversary

How are you celebrating being open 1 year in Downtown Allentown?
We are celebrating ALL week! We are doing an Instagram giveaway, photo opportunities inside the showroom, and sampling local treats and drinks during our appointments. We are also doing 10% off all month for any dress in the store!

What’s your favorite memory since opening this past year?
My favorite memory since opening was definitely seeing photos of our first wedding. When you see it come full circle, it truly is very humbling. I love being part of a bride’s special day and seeing photos of the bridesmaids in their gowns is truly very special. You see all your hard work paid off!

What’s the best part about having your business in Downtown Allentown?
The best part of having my business downtown is when I hear my customers say to me “You really couldn’t have picked a better location to open your store”. It’s amazing to hear how the public feels about Downtown Allentown and its growth. I know I made the right choice investing this franchise in the heart of downtown, but nothing beats it when your customers are excited about the revitalization too!

Why did you choose to open your business in Downtown Allentown?
I chose to open my business in Downtown Allentown because it’s the place to be right now. Whether for big events, local eating, or just to go out with friends, downtown is the place to be. We are standing out from Easton and Bethlehem and I am excited for its accelerated growth. Even a year has made a huge difference. I can only imagine three, five and ten years!

What are some benefits of being a City Center tenant?
City Center feels like a really big family. They are always asking how you are doing, saying hello when you see them in the building, supporting your events, sending referrals.

Tell us something you learned from owning a business in Downtown Allentown.
Being married, having a young daughter plus owning a franchise has taught me a lot about disconnection. When I say that, I mean being able to disconnect once I would leave the shop. Realizing that, those emails can wait and that when I come home, my family and friends have me at my best. Being able to adjust that work/life balance, was super hard in the beginning, but this business made me realize how important family and friends are and how fast life goes by.

What do you have planned for the upcoming year? We are thinking about construction! We can’t believe it! We are possibly adding more dressing rooms to accommodate more brides and their bridesmaids. Even thinking about changing the layout of the store! Change is a good right?

Are there any new products you’re excited about? YES! We just came back from Bridal Fashion Week in October and we are super eager for our Spring 2020 collection to arrive! Would you believe us if I told you our designers discontinue colors and styles every six months? We keep things so fresh and new within Bella Bridesmaids which allows us to always be on-trend.

What are some trends you’re expecting for 2020 bridesmaids’ dresses?
Neutrals and Satins! Boy are we excited about it! We are seeing more and more neutral colors like ivory & champagne take the front of bridesmaid dresses. Velvet is still trend-worthy for our fall/winter brides. We are excited about the new fabrics like Fluid Satin from Amsale, the classic Satin Back Crepe by Jenny Yoo, to Stretch Charmeuse from Dessy. These lightweight yet elegant fabrics are making a statement for next year!

They run a really good rental operation. The buildings are clean, amenities are excellent and the maintenance and administrative staff are friendly and helpful. It also feels safe.
Here 2 years and the staff from the leasing agents, the maintenance and even security are always quick with responses and truly care about your experience. My favorites to name a few are Bri, Meghan, Sabrina, Ashley, in leasing and Mike in maintenance. #movedowntown
Great amenity space— love the gym, yoga/barre room and pool. Spacious layouts with a lot of storage/closet space. My apartment has a great covered balcony. Modern appliances. Still feels new. Feels very safe and secure living here. Location is central and walkable to Starbucks, PPl center, festivals, art museum, and restaurants.
Great place to live at! They are very accommodating, they put their tenants needs first and do what they can to go above and beyond! Freebies, giveaways, networking events etc! Great place for content creators and entrepreneurs. I was worried it was going to be too loud but it’s not at all!
Center Square Lofts is an awesome place to live!! In general, I love the amenities of CSL and the location is perfect for me. The city is growing a lot with new bars and restaurants around. I would totally recommend CSL to all people. Great community!
I've lived at Center Square Lofts West for 3 and a half years and love it here! I downsized from a 3,000 plus SF home into a 1,200 plus SF apartment and was concerned about the transition, but the City Center crew made it easy. There are plenty of spacious closets and a storage facility for little-used items like decorations. As an avid baker, I accumulate a lot of kitchen items, including 8 kinds of flour, but the cupboards are quite roomy and everything fits. Restaurants, bars, swimming pool, all within walking distance. The few maintenance problems I've run into with my loft have been quickly remedied through Maintenance Mark and the office staff. I live in a quiet hallway with only seven units, so adjusting to apartment life has been mostly painless. I've just renewed my lease for the third time!
I love living here. So much to do and I am so happy I decided to give it a try living here. I feel very safe and I am very comfortable here. I highly recommend
CSL is by far THE BEST apartment complex I have lived at! I lived at about 6 other luxury apartments in California prior to moving to PA and CSL really has left a positive impression on me. The leasing staff have been helpful from the start and continue to do so as well! A lot of leasing staff in my experience are only helpful in the beginning when they want you to move in and then you never hear from them again but that is definitely not my experience here! Love the leasing staff and maintenance staff is also super friendly and professional! I renewed my lease for the 2nd year and highly recommend this building or any of the other city center residential communities to anyone looking for a new complex to live at!
All 5 stars are for Mark. He deserves 10 but google only allows 5.Also, if you ever have an issue with the apartment, Meagan and Tara will be on that in lightning speed.
LOVE living downtown at Center Square Lofts. The instant Meagan showed me the apartment, I fell in love. The amenities are great and the new pool is awesome. The maintenance staff are always on the ball and courteous. I get quick responses from the leasing department and they also do a great job of hosting fun events downtown as well.
I have been extremely satisfied with leasing at Center Square lofts. Full experience of a Luxury building . And great amenities.
We love Center Square Lofts! We lived in Strata previously and they made the lease transfer seamless. The construction is moving so quickly. I swear there is something new or updated every single day. It speaks to how hard the staff is working to make this building beautiful and unique.
Center Square Lofts East has been great. Our apartment is beautiful; brand new appliances, a lot of storage space, great lighting, Juliet balcony, etc. A lot of great common spaces as well including a lounge over looking the square with a fire place, a courtyard with a pool on the way, a gym, a yoga room and a dog park right next to the building. The staff have been very accommodating and the security was well thought through.Once the Pandemic subsides you are also literally a minute walk to the PPL Center, Brü Daddy’s Brewery, Queen City BBQ and more. Highly recommend if you are moving to Allentown!
Brand new appliances, beautiful bathroom and kitchen fixtures, and top notch amenity spaces (And a pool coming for summer 2021)!Building staff are friendly and always happy to help. Kaitlynn, Meagan, Robert, and Sabrina made sure my move was seamless. Great place to call home!
I was one of the first people to move into CSL East back in October. There were a few issues involving construction early on. So the grand opening was definitely rushed.Now that the dust has settled, it is a 5 star building. It’s all brand new the units have stainless steel GE appliances, vinyl floors, and quarts countertops. The amenities are beyond impressive. You have access to 2 different gyms, multiple lounge areas and club rooms, a nice courtyard with grills and fire pits, a sky deck , coworking room, and a balcony overlooking the center square.If you’re going to live in Allentown, this is the best place to be. The Hamilton district is the business district with the PPL Center, artswalk, and all the best restaurants in the city.
