Revitalization in Coatesville
Posted January 25, 2023
It's an invigorating time for the City of Coatesville as nearly $200 million in projects are either underway or planned through various public and private investments.
Sonia Huntzinger, Executive Director of the Coatesville 2nd Century Alliance was recently quoted in a Daily Local News article for her excitement about the City's growth.
"These development projects reflect just a small slice of the city, in the downtown actually," she said. "Bookended by the new train station on the east, and the Flats and nth Innovation Center to the west, $200,000,000 in this concentrated geographic area is significant."
"It represents both public and private investment. From the private sector, it speaks to the confidence developers have in the future of Coatesville. From the public sector, it reflects the support we have from our County, State, and Federal partners who also believe in our city's potential."
The list includes a variety of projects ranging from small to large — many of which support the goals found in the county's comprehensive plan, Landscapes3. Projects include the nth Innovation Center ($5 million); First Avenue & Lincoln Highway Intersection Realignment ($2 million); Downtown Streetscaping from First to Third Avenue ($1.3 million); Former National Bank ($1.4 million); Gateway ($21 million); Steel City Brewing ($1 million); 300 East Lincoln Highway ($9 million); Midway Arts ($1.1 million); Historic Train Station ($120,000); New Train Station ($65 million); Train Station Parking Garage ($13 million); National Sports and Events Center ($75 million); and various others.
"This is a great time to experience the change occurring every day in the city, and with the completion of some key infrastructure projects we are able to attract more investors seeking to become part of Coatesvilleâ€™s charm and local flavor that has made the City so unique," noted Coatesville City Manager James Logan, in the article.
