CAN DO understands the need for available buildings in today’s fast paced market when industries are looking to relocate, grow and expand. With that in mind, we continue to look for ways to enhance the offerings within Humboldt Industrial Park, one of the largest industrial parks in Pennsylvania, to meet the growing number of companies that are looking for ready to go properties they can occupy immediately.
Thankfully, multiple developers are filling some of the market demand as construction is underway in Humboldt on several new speculative buildings for tenants. Additionally, numerous other buildings are available for lease. Development companies Trammell Crow Company, Mericle Commercial Real Estate Services and Tri-Mountain Realty are each nearing completion of various size spec buildings in the park.
Downtown Hazleton’s revitalization is moving ahead full steam on the north side of Broad Street between Wyoming and Laurel streets, where construction crews are working on the future home of Broad and Barrel, an Irish style pub and restaurant that is expected to open in mid 2018.
CAN DO, Inc. purchased the building at 21-23 West Broad Street a year ago as part of its continuing commitment to the downtown with plans to renovate it into a beautiful addition to the streetscape and to attract a tenant like the one that will be leasing the building to operate the eatery.
Gottstein Chiriboga Holdings, Inc., has entered into a lease agreement with CAN DO for the building with plans on offering a pub-style lunch and dinner menu, craft and domestic beers, a full bar and entertainment several nights a week, said Scott Gottstein, a Gottstein Chiriboga vice president. The corporation is owned by Scott, his parents Ken and Barbara, sister, Kathy and her husband, Pablo.
Located directly along the I-81 corridor in Northeast Pennsylvania and just minutes from I-80, Greater Hazleton offers an ideal location, just two hours to New York City and Philadelphia and within a day's drive of half the nation's population.
