Easton‘s iconic brick and stone skyscraper is on target to be in new hands by the end of the year.
Mayor Sal Panto Jr. confirmed that the city is talking to a pair of finalists who want to buy the 91/2 -story city-owned Alpha Building, which anchors the southwest corner of Centre Square. The city agreed earlier this year to list the building for sale and solicit proposals from developers.
Officials declined to name the two finalists, or to say how many proposals were received — although Panto did say it was more than two.
“We are working more with one (developer) because they offered more,” Panto said of the ongoing negotiations.
