SteelStacks Project Moves Along, Receives Private Funds
Well, this is pretty exciting. Bank of America announced publicly today that it would be providing a significant fund ($250,000) towards the SteelStacks project. These are the first private funds coming into the project (hence, the press conference today at the Banana Factory). The Morning Call has a rendering of the project:
Some of the proposed features of the project are just ridiculously cool – and it makes me wish that it was already finished: a 450-seat Musikfest Cafe concert venue for year-round music, two cinemas for independent films, the “Pod Zone” media lounge (what is that???). This redevelopment is projected to bring in a number of good jobs into the area, as well as plenty more tourism into the Lehigh Valley.
Are you excited for this project? Which part are you most anticipating?
