Bethlehem, PA - January 31, 2018 - CBRE announced today that it has successfully negotiated a 4,200 square-foot lease for Grille 3501 at The Gateway Building on Greenway Park-a 125,000 square-foot, six-story building located at 3rd and New Streets in South Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The restaurant is the first retail tenant to announce at the mixed-use property. CBRE vice president Jody King is the exclusive leasing agent for the building on behalf of the building's landlord, Dennis Benner of Greenway 1, Inc. 

Grille 3501, which currently has a location in Allentown, Pennsylvania, is expected to open its second restaurant at Greenway Park this summer. The restaurant-which offers its unique version of "New American" cuisine-will occupy the sixth floor of the building, including a spacious outdoor balcony. 

Grille 3501 owner John Trapani stated, "We are going on our seventeenth year in business at Grille 3501 in Allentown and my partner Chef John Pukanecz and I are thrilled to be a part of the new Gateway Building at Greenway Park. We have looked at other opportunities over the years, but nothing has been the right fit until this project. Dennis Benner has created a venue that suits our next restaurant and the timing is right for us to expand into South Bethlehem," added Mr. Trapani. 

"We have been speaking with many retailers and restaurants to create the best tenant mix for the building and the area," said Ms. King. "I am excited that Grille 3501 is our first retail tenant and the roof top restaurant will have stunning views of both North and South Bethlehem."

Bethlehem Mayor Donchez stated, "Grille 3501 has an excellent reputation in the Lehigh Valley and will be an instant asset to South Bethlehem."

"This restaurant is a grand start to a broader urban renaissance. South Bethlehem is vibrant and open for business," added Dennis Benner. 

The $20 million Gateway at Greenway Park's anchor tenants include Lehigh University and St. Luke's University Health Network. A brand-new parking garage is adjacent to the property and will connect to the building with glass enclosed bridges.
