MKSD News – Winter 2014
The Northampton Community College Monroe Campus is in the news yet again… this time, the Lehigh Valley Business Journal highly lauded the new campus as a pace-setter for the Pocono business community. Enrollment in the College has risen by 10% this fall, and the offered courses are geared toward Pocono region businesses, such as healthcare, tourism, science & technology.
MKSD is thankful to be an integral part of the Campus’s conception & creation.
Here are a few highlights from the article:
” “The only term I can use to describe it is energy,” said Matt Connell, dean of Monroe NCC in Tannersville. “There is such an energy coming from the faculty and the students.
“It’s exciting for them to use all these new amenities, technology features and enjoy the spectacular scenery.”
The opening of the new $72 million home of the Monroe campus of NCC is one of the top business stories of the year in the Greater Lehigh Valley. Sitting on 83 acres, the site can accommodate 5,000 students and has three buildings with areas dedicated to science – which offer two biology labs, two microbiology labs and a new electronic technology lab. ”
MKSD is also mentioned in this article describing the plan for Lehigh Hills development, by the Jaindl Corporation. Specifically, Lehigh Valley Health Network’s new medical office building in Fogelsville, PA. The 40,000 sf office is set to open in 2015. Serfass Construction is working with us to complete this fantastic project.
” The project features a 40,000-square-foot health center for Lehigh Valley Health Network that should be complete and fully occupied by the summer, according to Jaindl.
“We have been working on many different projects with LVHN over the past 10 years,” Jaindl said. “We look forward to expanding our relationship with this beautiful, fully leased medical office building. Jaindl Land Co. is expecting completion and occupancy by LVHN in 2015. We anticipate the residential and ‘pad site’ components to follow in 2016.””
