ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

A key piece of Allentown's downtown revitalization is beginning to take shape.

Steel beams are now being set in place for the National Penn Bank Headquarters Building project.

The building will be located next to the hockey arena site at Seventh and Hamilton streets.

National Penn is expecting to relocate its headquarters from Boyertown to Allentown in 2014.

Plans call for the $50 million dollar building to have various uses besides being home to National Penn.
