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.
Love it here! Got a studio in the East building, and was immediately sold during my tour with Meagan. Some construction still underway during move in, but nothing too disruptive. The amenities themselves are totally worth it; from the gyms/yoga studio to the lounges and come spring/summer the salt water pool officially opens. Grilling stations, adult swing sets, fire pit, giant chess, pool table, shuffle board and fooseball in the courtyard and adjacent lounge. Brand new appliances, and the closet space is to die for. And washer/drier in every unit was a huge plus for me. Brand new building, super modern and classy. Security is on point too (sec cams and regular walkthroughs).
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.
