“Partnering with Clayco on such a challenging group of projects like Hanover was the best choice,” said Eric Watts of NorthPoint. “Their sound construction practices and commitment to exceeding timelines have allowed Hanover 9 and Hanover Ridge Trade Center to become a reality for the Lehigh Valley.”
