The Steelhouse in East Greensboro will be the center of urban manufacturing and innovation. A one-of-a-kind ecosystem that spans 15 acres, housing small businesses and creating high paying jobs. The New Localism founder, Bruce Katz has deemed The Steelhouse a “transformative investment” that has the potential to “trigger profound ripple effects”.
For nearly 85 years, The Steelhouse was the primary fabrication plant and world headquarters for Carolina Steel. Carolina Steel took steel from Southern mills to bend and modify for use in factories and commercial buildings. They pivoted to highways and bridge systems due to the growing demand In the late 1950s.
Iconic North Carolina buildings such as the Dean Dome and the Reynolds Building, a masterpiece of Art Deco design and detail, were fabricated at The Steelhouse. The Reynolds Building is well known for being a design inspiration for the much larger Empire State Building that was built in 1931 in New York City.
In addition to preserving and protecting the historic buildings and character of the fifteen-acre campus and serving as an incubator and supporter of entrepreneurs and small businesses, The Steelhouse will further the mission of The Nussbaum Center for Entrepreneurship to reduce small business failures in the City of Greensboro.
