Controversial Steelyard Commons moves forward

However you feel about the huge Steelyard Commons retail center, going up on the old LTV West Mill site -- needed addition to the city's tax base or big-box blight that wastes potential -- the project is proceeding ahead, the Plain Dealer reports. In addition to the economic potential of the project, it is reusing an old mill building as a history center, installing a utility bridge, adding a crane and hot-metal railcar and bringing in the Cuyahoga Scenic Railway and the Towpath Trail, as elements of a tribute to the site's industrial heritage.
