EASTON, Pa. - A long-awaited project in Easton is another step closer to becoming a reality.

Officials broke ground Wednesday at the site of the new Commodore building on Northampton Street.

It will be built where the old Kaplan's Awning building once stood.

The more than $21-million project will consist of 32 apartments, office space, a rooftop restaurant, and two retail shops.

Construction work is expected to be complete by next summer.
