its complicated. The short answer is a 150 year old steel mill was required to remediate its environmental issues and it was cheaper to scrap the entire property. Lot more to it than that, but thats the basic idea.

The property is the only deepwater port outside of the key bridge. It is going to become an intermodal facility for the port of baltimore. Thats part of the complication. They wanted to sell the steel mill but the environmental remediation was made a condition of the sale by the city therefore no buyers. Conveniently baltimore and the state stepped in and said hey no buyers? We'll take it off your hands.
