Pittsburgh's big time buying behemoth was a 1.2 million square foot, tri-level structure with five anchors and one hundred and seventy stores and services. Developed by Youngstown's Edward J. DeBartolo and the U.S. Steel Corporation, the prospective shopping center was named CENTURY III in 1976; a homage to the nation's Bicentennial Year and the advent of its third century.
