Soon-to-be-Vacant Hellertown Bank Building: What Should Go There?

Print More
Bank of America

In a few short weeks the Bank of America branch at 5 Main Street in Hellertown borough will close, and a building that has housed a succession of bank branches for nearly 50 years will likely sit empty, at least for a time.

Bank of America announced in the spring that the branch at the corner of Main Street and Polk Valley Road would close at the end of July, in part because of declining demand for in-person banking services.

The 2500-square-foot building in the Shoppes at Hellertown shopping center is now listed for lease for $1.83 per square foot per month, which equates to approximately $4,575 a month.

According to a listing on the commercial realty website LoopNet, the branch is “turn-key, with existing components such as (a) bank vault, deposit boxes, two private offices, ADA restrooms and upstairs access.”

The building also features two drive-thru lanes and an ATM machine on its north-facing exterior wall.

The listing agent for the property is Ayon Codner of KW Commercial-The James Balliet Commercial Group of Allentown. Click here to view the lease brochure.
