MAP: How the warehouse boom has reshaped this Lehigh Valley community

AuthorAuthor
PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

Since 2008, there have been 17 large-scale industrial buildings constructed on 16 properties in the northern end of Palmer Township totaling 6 million square feet. Not all buildings have been built in the Chrin Commerce Centre; some are on adjacent roads or in the nearby Palmer Industrial Park.

Only 1000 Carson Court is vacant. The property at 1520 Van Buren Road is partially occupied.

The 16 properties generated $8.2 million in property taxes in 2022, ($792,000 to Palmer Township, $1 million to Northampton County and $6.4 million to the Easton Area School District.)

The three taxing bodies combined paid $4.6 million toward repayment of the tax increment financing bond for the Route 33 Interchange. The bond is expected to be paid off by 2025, six years ahead of schedule.

The tax revenue for properties within the tax financing district, whose tax revenue is used toward bond repayment, is marked with an asterisk. Hover over each location for more details.
