Originally National Rolling Mills, the site of  Uptown Worthington by O’Neill Properties gets its name from Worthington Steel which acquired National Rolling Mills in the 1980’s.

The site has been under development for several years.  Most recently a new Target and Wegman’s opened in 2010.  O’Neill Properties, which is suing Citizens Bank over financing, will turn over part of the site on Matthews Road to PNC Bank for a new branch to open next year.  Also, O’Neill has changed the original plan to include 753 apartments instead of luxury condos.

Here’s the piece from the Daily Local News about the most recent changes to the development:
