SteelStacks Project On Track

Officials in Bethlehem, Pa., have reportedly approved plans for a public park including an amphitheatre as part of the $36 million SteelStacks development that began four years ago.

The plan for 21st Century Town Square includes a 3,600-capacity amphitheatre located near the historic blast furnaces at the site. A picnic grove and room for a farmer and antiques market are also part of the plan.

The town square will reportedly complement ArtsQuest’s new performing arts center currently under construction with the goal of opening in May.

The development will also be the future home of ArtsQuest’s annual 10-day Musikfest.
