Hazelwood Green, Transforming a Brownfield

This Hazelwood Green video outlines stunning transformation of former steel mill site into community-guided development

Hazelwood Green is a former steel mill site on 178 acres of Hazelwood’s riverfront along the Monongahela River. The property was purchased out of bankruptcy for $10 million by local foundations in 1999. This foresight ensured that the site could be land banked for a thoughtful redevelopment vision that could benefit the neighborhood, city, and region as a whole. Today the three foundation owners, Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, and Richard King Mellon Foundation, remain committed to the redevelopment of Hazelwood Green. Through deep community partnerships – and guided by tenets of equity and ecological sustainability – the twenty-year project has seen major progress in recent months. The openings of the Plaza at Hazelwood Green and The Roundhouse, the expansion of Mill 19, and significant new investment announcements are sparking international interest in the site.
