Pennsburg Medical Office Poised to Undergo Renovations
Written by Bradley schlegel, Staff Writer

            A medical office in Pennsburg that changed hands last year is poised to undergo significant renovations. Last week, a contractor hired by the Lehigh Valley Health Network paid $38,715 in fees to complete upgrades at a facility at property at 101 West Seventh St. The network is planning $3 million worth of improvements, according to information provided by council President Diane Stevens.

            Marc Breidenbach, the director of design and construction for the Lehigh Valley Health Network, is listed as the property owner on the permit application. Grand View Medical Practices Ob-Gyn previously operated at the property, which had been owned by the Upper Perkiomen Medical Association since 1993, according to information on the county's website.

            The new facility marks the network's initial foray into Montgomery County. Patients have expressed a preference to accessing its services closer to home, according to an email message from Brian Downs, the Lehigh Valley Health Network's public information officer.

            "Specific details are being discussed and once we have those finalized we will announce the services that will be available in that location and when," Downs wrote in the message received Wednesday morning.

            Jerdon Construction, of Allentown, submitted applications to municipal officials on July 8. Multiple permits were issued to the company on July 20, according to copies of the borough's building and zoning application.

            The contractor plans numerous enhancements for the two-story structure. They include new drywall partitions, flooring, painting, HVAC and ductwork, electrical and plumbing upgrades, reroofing, as well as the implementation of new electrical panels and security devices, along with lighting and receptacles throughout the 21,000 square foot structure, according to the documents.

            The work must commence within six months of the issuance date, according to the information provided by borough officials. The developer plans on spending $575,000 for electrical work, $450,000 to complete HVAC improvements and $300,000 for plumbing upgrades.

            The March, 20 2020 purchase and planned development account for the network's initial foray into Montgomery County. It spent $880,000 to purchase the parcel from the Upper Perkiomen Medical Association, according to Montgomery County property records.

            Municipal officials expressed pleasure with the purchase last year. Stevens said last spring that the 2.38-acre parcel could have been utilized for an apartment complex.
