The Majestic Bethlehem Center will receive a $5 million Economic Growth Initiative grant from the state.

The center is 441 acres of former Bethlehem Steel property that is being developed into a multimodal shipping and distribution center for several businesses.

The money is part of a $30 million package of grants that has been issued to support the redevelopment and construction of four existing projects and two new projects across the state.

The funding will be used to continue the construction and improvement of existing infrastructure to the Majestic facility.

When complete, the project is expected to be an 8-million-square-foot, state-of-the-art logistics, light industrial and data center that will create as many as 1,600 jobs.

Crayola LLC was the first tenant and moved into the center earlier this year.
