Metropolis Towers

The Metropolis Towers construction has been on hiatus for the last few months. Ever since they quickly removed the low rise structure connecting the two towers, construction all but stopped.

Eventually, the center area between the buildings will likely be a mid-rise parking garage, and the property along Columbus Drive, where the camera is, will have two new 25 story towers.

The next step here is removal of chromium-contaminated soil. Metropolis Towers Apartment Corporation and PPG (formerly known as Pittsburgh Plate Glass--the "responsible party" that dumped the chromium there years ago) have filed a remediation plan which is still awaiting approval by the Department of Environmental Protection.
