Pomeroy Lofts – Phase 1 in a two-phase reclamation process – mixes modern amenities with the restored grand Victorian façade that was originally designed by architect William Michler. The building houses two acclaimed local restaurants as well as 22 luxury apartments.
Completion of the Pomeroy Lofts project created a distinct visual and economic impact on the City of Easton’s main commerce corridor and was a huge victory for the community in it’s revitalization efforts.
Originally built in the late 1800s and spanning a city block just steps from Centre Square, Pomeroy Lofts was part of an 80,000-square-foot structure fondly remembered as the former Laubach’s department store showroom. However, after sitting vacant for 40 years, the Pomeroy Building was looking long past its prime, and two failed attempts at redevelopment left the community with not only an eyesore, but also the belief that no one could succeed.
