A major piece of the downtown Reading puzzle has a new owner.
The five-story, 260,000-square-foot CNA Insurance building at Fourth and Penn streets has been donated to the I-LEAD Charter School, company and school officials said.
“It’s a blessing from the sky,” said Angel Figueroa, vice president for resource and development at I-LEAD. “It’s going to change the lives of many young people.”
Officials from CNA and I-LEAD are expected to officially announce the donation at an event this afternoon.
