Does anyone have any additional photos/diagrams of the old "Pittsburgh City Center" proposal from the 1980's?

This was to include a large shopping mall with two department stores, a 330 room Ritz-Carlton hotel (later changed to Grand Bay), two 28 story office towers, and a 53 story office tower, who's spire would have made it the tallest building in the city. This was to be located where Mellon Bank built their operations center.

After spending some time on Google, this picture is the best I could come up with:

Here is a detailed article from the old Pittsburgh Press, mostly on page A4 (also where that image originates):
