With the owner having retired and the convalescent home at 331 Pennsylvania Avenue having closed, plans to convert the historic three-story building which was constructed by the Bethlehem Steel Company in 1916 and first served as the Union Iron Works Hospital into six residential units have emerged.

As proposed, a two-story addition would be constructed behind the building and three private balconies would be added to the north. Five new off-street parking spaces would be accessed by way of garage door to be carved in the façade while a new rooftop deck and garden would sprout above.

The building’s change in use will require authorization from the Planning Commission.
