Halsey and Alice North's Projects

  • ArtsQuest at SteelStacks

    • August 2007 to Present

    State of the Art Performing Arts Center, by ArtsQuest in Bethlehem, PA, on the largest brownfield in America, as part of this nonprofit’s mission to bring Arts to the region. This “State of the Art” facility has allowed for significant expansion of the Musikfest 10 day community festival, Christkindlmarkt, and First Night events held throughout Bethlehem under the management of ArtsQuest, as well as now allowing ArtsQuest to bring in artists year round for new festivals and indoor/outdoor events and education opportunities with local schools and colleges. Independent Cinema, tourist destination activities, and a vast array of opportunities to bring people together in the "Town Square" of the region now exists. This was accomplished with NMTC participation by US Bank, CitiFirst, and Commonwealth Cornerstone Group as well assponsor financing with Lafayette Ambassador and TD Banks. Consideration is now being given to additional adaptive redevelopment of the Turn and Grind Shop Facility on the SteelStacks campus to accommodate more indoor community and artist events "off season."

  • Multiple Historic Theatre Rehabilitations

    • June 2005 to Present

    Several Historic Theatre rehabilitations using both “20%” and “10%” HTCs and NMTCs, as applicable.
