College to condos in Coopersburg

The property at 600 S. Main Street in Coopersburghas been through several incarnations in its nearly 130-year history: the estate of a cattle merchant, an orphanage and most recently, Pinebrook Junior College.

Now, an Allentown developer would like to put it to one more use: posh condominiums.

Tom Williams, owner of Cityline Construction of Allentown, bought the former college campus in 1997. He subdivided the property into three parcels: one including the now-refurbished Cooper mansion, one with three homes and the last with the college buildings.

It is the three-story college building that Williams hopes to renovate into 20 to 25 upscale one- or two-bedroom condominiums, his attorney, John Roberts, told Coopersburg Borough Council

Hi,

Believe it or not, I was president of the Student Government when they decided to close the doors at Pinebrook Junior College. It was funny to read that it could become luxury condos!
