Searching for Dream Street - Hazelwood
The bar mill building is one of the last structures that remain on the former 178-acre LTV site in Hazelwood near Pittsburgh, Pa. The steel building is seven stories tall and a third of a mile long.
The mill shut down in the late 1990s, and in 2002, was bought by RIDC and a group of local foundations — including the Heinz Endowments and Richard King Mellon Foundation — intent on reclaiming the land for the city and community.
The Almono partnership — including the Heinz Endowments and Richard King Mellon and Claude Worthington Benedum foundations — is preparing the LTV property for $1.3 billion in offices, light manufacturing and housing. They plan on using the bar mill as a centerpiece to the property.
Hazelwood was home to the city of Pittsburgh's last operating steel mill, the Hazelwood Coke Works, which was owned by Jones and Laughlin and later, its parent company, LTV, when it closed in 1998.
