by Tim Kuehnlein and Mike Breslin, staff writer, Fortune magazine, February 16, 2021, 4:20 pmMall Mall is set to reopen with a brand new steel manufacturing facility and a new, more upscale mall that could become the next headquarters of one of the world’s largest steel companies.
The announcement came Thursday in the city of Louisville, Kentucky, with the opening of the new Steel City, a new complex of buildings and retail space set to open in 2018.
It is the second major expansion of a steel mill in the United States, following the opening in April 2018 of a $3.4 billion facility at the Erie Steel Works in Erie, Pennsylvania.
Steel City will be located at a new site adjacent to the existing Steel City complex, which will be known as Steel City Mall.
A new mall has also been announced for the nearby city of Cincinnati.
The steel mill, which manufactures components for aluminum, steel, and other industrial uses, has been based at the company’s Buffalo, New York, facility for nearly 40 years.
