BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday for a unique housing project in Bethlehem.

Crews will spend the next several months working to transform the former St. Stanislaus Church property on Hayes Street into the South Side Lofts.

The complex will offer low-income housing for artists.

Another set of apartments will be built at a nearby site on Atlantic Street.

Officials have not said when the first tenants will be able to move in.
