The City Center of Duquesne [†] lies on the 250-acre site of the former Duquesne Steel Works. With the collapse of the steel industry, the region lost half of its manufacturing base, and the real property tax base and population in the Valley plummeted by 75 percent. The Duquesne Steel Works abandoned production in 1984 and closed its doors in 1987 when Allegheny County took control of the former steel mill site.

The steel works elevated the Duquesne City Center above the river with slag fill to prevent flooding, making the river difficult to access.
