Now, Ellicott Development is finishing conversion into new uses, bulwarked by a large parking lot along Wadsworth, something not common in the Allentown community.

Ellicott CEO William Paladino says some tenants are already in the renovated space.

"The whole first floor and half of the second floor will be leased out to Gateway-Longview. It's a nice organization. They've been on the West Side for many years, right on Niagara Street. They're currently operational in the building. On the fourth floor of the building we have recently completed apartments and are currently leasing them out. We have 13 units up there of which we have six leased at this point in time," Paladino said.

Apartments will range from $890 to $2,295 a month including parking and utilities. Applications are being accepted.
