The Walmart e-commerce fulfillment facility in south Bethlehem is part of the Majestic Bethlehem Center. Majestic will be recognized Oct. 30 during the annual March of Dimes Commercial & Industrial Real Estate Award Event.

But as with many nonprofit organizations trying to function and fundraise amid the coronavirus pandemic, event planners will be holding this year’s event virtually.

The 27th annual March of Dimes Lehigh Valley Commercial & Industrial Real Estate Event will be held at noon Oct. 30. It will feature an update on the industrial real estate market, a 30-minute virtual-networking session with a number of videoconferencing breakout rooms, and a video tour of St. Luke’s University Health Network Baby & Me Support Center in Bethlehem.

Organizers will also award longtime real estate and commercial lawyer Joseph A. Zator, founder of Zator Law in South Whitehall Township, its Person of the Year. And the Majestic Bethlehem Center will receive recognition for Project of the Year. Majestic Bethlehem Center is a 441-acre ongoing industrial park near near Interstate 78 and on the outskirts of the former Bethlehem Steel plant.
