Rivers of Steel: An Iconic Symbol – The Carrie Blast Furnaces

Beautifully written piece by Rivers of Steel’s President & CEO  August Carlino, reflecting on the Carrie Furnace site, its past, its present, its future. For over 30 years, Rivers of Steel has been the steward of the Carrie Blast Furnaces National Historic Landmark. We’re honored to be a part of this historic site’s future and look forward to bringing it to life with the type of 21st Century jobs that are driving our economy.

Just as our project at Mill 19 leads us into the future while paying homage to our past, the Carrie Blast Furnace will serve as both a historic landmark and a present-day hub of economic activity.

This is RIDC’s sixth major development in the Mon Valley, in addition to Keystone Commons, City Center of Duquesne, The Pittsburgh Technology Center, Mill 19 at Hazelwood Green, and McKeesport.

Our work continues.
