WHEELING (AP) — The former RG Steel building in downtown Wheeling is up for sale for $900,000.

Built in 1905, the 13-story building once served as the headquarters of Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel.

Jay Goodman with Harvey Goodman Realtors told The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register that the building is in "great shape."

Goodman says several out-of-state companies have expressed interest in the building since he got the listing in late December.

RG formed in 2011 when Wheeling-Pitt's former operations were combined with Bethlehem Steel's former Sparrows Point mill in Baltimore, and the former WCI Steel plant in Warren, Ohio. RG filed for bankruptcy protection in May 2012.
