There have been two public meetings to gather input for the planning process for the redevelopment of the Iron City Brewery site. The second meeting was detailed in a long post just recently. The third public meeting is coming up on Tuesday, November 27.
This development will be a big project, ultimately bringing businesses, visitors, and hundreds more cars to the site, located on the border between Polish Hill and Lawrenceville. It is crucial that residents and stakeholders weigh in during this phase of the planning, when we might able to influence the direction of the development. The PHCA and many Polish Hill residents are keenly interested in seeing a historically sensitive redevelopment; one which preserves as many of the old brick buildings as possible, as well as the unique character of the site.
Lawrenceville Development Corporation has been engaged in the planning process with Collier Development, the owner of the Iron City Brewery site. The LDC has added an Iron City Brewery Development Update Center on their website, and we encourage anyone who cares what happens at this site to take a look. The material includes the slide presentations from the two public meetings that have been held thus far and the three plan options that were presented at the October 16 meeting.
