In the spring of 2023, Highland Holding Group proposed a land development plan to the Borough of State College (home of Penn State University) on a .9-acre parcel at 224 South Allen Street.  The proposed plans describe a 160-room hotel with a multi-level parking garage of over 170 parking stalls. 

The building's 27,000 square feet footprint includes a ground floor level indoor/outdoor event space that will accommodate over 200 seated guests. The outdoor space will wrap-around the existing Jeramar building in a U-shape, with controlled access onto Allen Street.

The rooftop will house a bar with views of downtown State College and outdoor access.

The proposed facade includes sections of vertical elements that will help screen the garage. These reddish/brownish elements will be stacked vertically and are reminiscent of organic elements. 

PennTerra Engineering is proud to partner with Highland Holding Group on another project in downtown State College. Previously, the two firms collaborated on The Edge.
