New development planned for Hazelwood; could be home for Amazon

Updated:

Pittsburgh and Allegheny County leaders unveiled a new development in Hazelwood Friday.  

Channel 11 has learned the former Almono site will be called Hazelwood Green and it could possibly be a location for Amazon if the company comes to Pittsburgh.  

City leaders said the goal is to make this site part of the Hazelwood community and not a separate entity.

It will eventually be 3 million square feet of office space and 2,000 housing units. 

The space used to be LTV Steel and the Jones and Laughlin Steel Company.  Mill 19 is still there, and it will be used in development. 

The big question is, if Amazon's second headquarters chooses Pittsburgh,  will it be here? 

“Who knows?  Any company would be lucky to be here,” Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald said. “Whether it's Amazon or any company would want to locate in this great site. It's a very desirable; a large, beautiful site, right on the river.”

While the future is uncertain, it's clear the new name, Hazelwood Green, works for the community.
 
Channel 11 took a tour of the property and got to scope out the site.
