The Shimer Building

Jaindl Properties originally acquired 1519 W. Hamilton Street in October 2011. The property, which had fallen into distress, served as the first full-scale renovation for Jaindl Properties and helped them establish the day-to-day operations and management associated with historical renovations and redevelopment.

Jaindl Properties first worked the basic aesthetics of the property: replacing every inch of mortar in the exterior stonework, removing all fluorescent lighting and drop ceilings, removing non-original hardware from doors and windows and working with historical teams to replace all aspects of the building with time-specific fixtures. The electrical and telecommunication systems, both very out of date, were entirely removed replaced, and the entire home was insulated to maximize utility efficiencies. Finally a team of historical specialists worked to create an interior design plan that returned the home to its original grandeur.

After so much time and effort, and with a commitment to restore similar properties and homes throughout Allentown to the same high quality standard, Jaindl Properties opted to make The Shimer Building their company headquarters.
