Downtown Reading – Berks County’s Central Business District
In collaboration with numerous partners, the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance (GRCA) is working to revitalize and facilitate economic development in Downtown Reading.
Momentum is building in the Downtown area with the announcement of Alvernia University’s CollegeTowne at 401 Penn Street and the redevelopment of the Madison Building at 400 Washington Street with more in the pipeline. Over the last 10+ years over $266 million dollars have been invested in numerous development projects in the downtown area.
