WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) - Six floors of a historic and mostly vacant bank building in northeastern Pennsylvania are being converted into 72 luxury apartments.

The building in downtown Wilkes-Barre was designed by architect Daniel Burnham, who also designed icons like the Flatiron Building in New York.

Citizens Bank vacated the bottom two floors of the 14-story building last year and most of the building is now vacant.

Apartments are being designed on the fifth through 10th floors. Rental prices have not yet been determined.

The apartments will add to several other newer high-end apartments in other old bank buildings in downtown Wilkes-Barre.
