Samter’s building project near completion

As appeared in The Times Tribune by Clayton Over on November 19, 2018.

Another Charles Jefferson development in Scranton is nearing completion . Renovations to the former Samter’s building at Penn and Lackawanna avenues will be completed by the end of the month, Jefferson said. All but two of the 24 apartments in the top floors of the five- story building have been leased, Jefferson said. He has been in talks with some businesses to occupy commercial space on the first floor, he added. Built as the Samter’s clothing store for men and boys, it closed in 1977. The building later contained state government offices but had been empty for years.
