• $100M plan would remake Iron City brewery


    PITTSBURGH -  A western Pennsylvania developer has brewed up a plan to overhaul the complex where Iron City Beer used to be made.

    Collier Development wants to turn the nine-acre site in Pittsburgh into a 100-room hotel, 150 apartments and shops and hotels. The $100 million plan needs to be approved the city's historic commission because it calls for some buildings on the site to be razed.

    The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports the plan would restore several 19th century buildings, including the 1884 brew house.

    Iron City Brewing Co. moved beer production to Latrobe in 2009. The label is no owned by Pittsburgh Brewing Co.
