Alvin H Butz, Inc has been headquartered in Allentown since 2006 when we moved our offices from South Whitehall to the struggling downtown with hopes of encouraging additional developers to do the same. In 2013 we expanded the original Butz Corporate Center and have successfully leased 95% of the building with only retail space available on the first floor. As a result of the demand for Class A space and the tremendous revitalization the downtown is experiencing we have completed construction of 842 which includes 55,000 square feet of Class-A office space on seven floors. For leasing inquiries please contact Jody King of CBRE at Jody.King@cbre.com or by calling 610-398-3384. We look forward to welcoming you as a tenant!
Butz Corporate Center
We think that the most important attribute of a design is that it meets the functional needs of its users. We work with each client to understand their requirements and to develop a design solution that will not only function well but will express the qualities that make that client unique. We coordinate with the client, our consultants, and the builder to make the design and construction procedure run as smoothly as possible. We are passionate about architectural design and enjoy the process of analyzing problems, developing ideas, and transforming those ideas into successful solutions.
A New Beginning
Allentown is experiencing an unprecedented revitalization. In the past few years over 500 million dollars has been poured into various office, retail, commercial and residential projects. By becoming a tenant at the Butz Corporate Center you are not only getting beautiful Class A office space in a great location you are also a part of the transformation of a City. Below are some videos highlighting some of the transformation that has occurred.

WHAT OUR TENANTS SAY
Check out these testimonials from our tenants and hear what they have to say about Alvin H Butz, Inc as a landlord and what it is like growing a business in Allentown.
Alvin H. Butz, Inc.
The Butz family has a long, successful tradition of building in the Lehigh Valley that dates back to the mid-1800s, when the family constructed covered bridges. Alvin H. Butz, Inc. has been continuously owned and operated in the Lehigh Valley by the Butz family, with the 6th generation in line to preserve the tradition and reputation of the organization. Butz pioneered the Construction Management concept in the Lehigh Valley in 1973. They provide exceptional, comprehensive construction management services, led by strong values and complete customer satisfaction. The firm possesses significant experience in the construction of healthcare facilities, colleges/universities, corporate office buildings, hi-tech manufacturing facilities, sports and entertainment venues, government buildings, K-12 schools and retail buildings. Butz has been consistently ranked among the nation’s Top 400 and Top 100 General Contractors by ENR, McGraw-Hill’s construction industry magazine and is one of the largest, most reputable CM firms headquartered in Pennsylvania.
Butz brings integrity, reliability, and responsiveness to every project and has a long list of repeat Clients to prove it. The Butz name is also synonymous with community leadership. The Butz Family have always been huge proponents of urban revitalization believing that a vibrant downtown is the key to continued redevelopment of Pennsylvania’s third largest city, Allentown. In 2005, they made their commitment tangible by constructing a class-A office building to house their headquarters, as well as to attract additional businesses into Allentown’s downtown. It is their belief that a healthy and vibrant downtown is critical to the success of the entire Lehigh Valley region. The Butz Corporate Center is located in the Neighborhood Improvement Zone (NIZ). Created by a state law in 2011, the NIZ is a special taxing district that encourages development and revitalization in Allentown. Under the law, certain state and local tax revenues generated by new and existing businesses within the NIZ can be used to pay debt on bonds and loans that are issued for qualifying capital improvements in the zone. Businesses located in the NIZ enjoy reduced rent, but also are contributing to a strengthened, more collaborative urban community.
This is an amazing opportunity to not only secure Class A space at an affordable lease price but also become a part of the Allentown Story.
Alvin H. Butz, Inc., the oldest and largest construction company of its kind in the Lehigh Valley, has operated continuously since its founding in 1920.
