Efforts to bring a $400 million development with housing, commercial space, community amenities and greenspace to a 178-acre former LTV Corp. coke works property in Hazelwood will move forward under new direction, officials said.

A master developer is being sought to spearhead development of the prime riverfront site since Cleveland-based developer Forest City Enterprises Inc. is no longer actively involved.

"By mutual agreement with Forest City, we've decided to move in another direction," Robert Stephenson, president of the Regional Industrial Development Corp., said this week.

TampaBay.com, Hillsborough seeks Wiregrass halt

Slightly more than a month after Wiregrass Ranch won approval from Pasco officials, Hillsborough County has filed an appeal to stop the 5,000-acre development.

Hillsborough commissioners told the Florida Department of Community Affairs on Thursday that they want the developer to give $28-million to widen the segment of Bruce B. Downs Boulevard between County Line Road and Pebble Creek Boulevard.

Hillsborough is remaking the road from four to eight lanes, but its officials say Wiregrass will eat up 80 percent of that new capacity.
Hillsborough officials say they've tried repeatedly to ask for help from Pasco and Wiregrass developers, which include Pulte Homes, Forest City Enterprises and the Goodman Co.
