The Lehigh Township supervisors approved an agreement with developer David Jaindl regarding property acquisitions and recreational facilities upgrades on the Lehigh Valley Resort and Spa project.
After negotiations, Jaindl agreed to give $280,000 to the LTMA to deepen a well, and that the township would convey two acres of land to the LTMA. Also, there will be $42,000 allocated for improvements at Indian Trail Park, up $14,000 from an original amount of $28,000. “This is a rather significant benefit to the township,” Joseph Zator said.
The first phase of the development for the resort and spa project will be on the site of the former Mary Immaculate Center, located at 300 Cherryville Road. The initial phase includes a 206-room hotel, restaurants, spa and wellness center. It is expected to be completed by late 2022. Development of the entire 600 acres could take upwards of 20 years, according to comments Jaindl made before supervisors in August.
This project will bring revenue and jobs to a long-vacant property. Zator Law is proud to help our client move forward with this great project that will benefit the township.
