The Northern Ambridge Redevelopment Project
Breathing New Life Into A 50 Acre Brownfield
Ambridge was born as a steel town, growing and booming with the domestic steel industry until its abrupt collapse in the early 1980s.  Plants that had once employed thousands became abandoned bulks, crumbling into disrepair and leaving nothing behind but idle brownfields and urban blight.  But with a new millennium came a new direction - a massive brownfield reclamation effort - and new energy in the community.

The Vision

An ongoing collaboration between the public sectors is transforming 50 acres of dilapidated buildings and unusable land into a bright, new asset for the Borough of Ambridge and Beaver County, Pennsylvania.  Because of a vision shared by redevelopment expert Rob Moltoni and state, county and municipal officials, these unsafe and unsightly brownfields looming over the town are becoming a sustainable mixed-use development for manufacturers and businesses and a new residential neighborhood.
