Housenick Park in the news

One of our projects, Housenick Park, has made the news lately along with MKSD Partner, Kim LaBrake. For the project, MKSD is working with Pennoni Associates on the Master Plan for the Janet Johnston Housenick & William D. Housenick Memorial Park which encompasses 55 acres once owned by the Housenick Family. Included on the site is a 12,000 sf, early 20th century mansion that was once the home of Archibald Johnston who was the first mayor of Bethlehem and the first President of Bethlehem Steel. The 17-room Georgian-Colonial-style mansion was finished in 1923 and has not been occupied since the late 1990s. MKSD evaluated the existing condition of the Mansion and provided multiple use options and opinion of probable costs ranging from an exterior renovation only to fully restoring the entire mansion for public use.
