Popular restaurants such as The Dime, The Hamilton Kitchen, ROAR Social House, Queen City BBQ, Centro, Grain and Allentown Brew Works add to local favorites. Other attractions include Allentown Symphony Hall, the Allentown Art Museum and Arts Park. The Hamilton District is also home to many treasures including the PPL Center, Tucker’s Yarn, Studio 606 and Youth Education in the Arts.

In addition, its location is in close proximity to many of Lehigh County’s top colleges and universities including Muhlenberg College (1.5 miles); Cedar Crest College (2 miles); Penn State Lehigh Valley (7 miles); Lehigh University (6.5 miles); and DeSales University (8.5 Miles).

Due to the revitalization efforts in the City of Allentown, over $1 billion has been spent over the past five years. Much of the focus has been on building new office space and attracting companies to move their headquarters to Allentown. This has created a growing market for luxury apartment living within the city limits. Julian Court Apartments provides a unique value-add opportunity to tap into that market by renovating kitchens and bathrooms and increase rents by as much as 20%.
