The Lantern Building
Eyesore block endcap building rehab - (The construction of the glittering 3PNC tower and the adjacent public 'Triangle Park' made this other little triangle structure stick out which is why they bought it and are turning it into something useful instead of a detractor)
Pittsburgh Riverhounds Stadium
"The Pittsburgh Riverhounds of USL PRO announced today the construction of a $7.5 million stadium to serve as a home field for the franchise. The stadium will be constructed in Station Square, Pittsburgh’s preeminent mixed-use entertainment complex, with a completion date set for summer 2012. The stadium will operate year-round and host games and tournaments in soccer, football, lacrosse, rugby, and softball for youth, high school, college and pro teams, but will only have permanent field markings for soccer. It will also maintain the location as an outdoor venue for concerts and community events to replace an outdoor amphitheater that has operated on the site for years. The stadium will seat approximately 3,500 individuals on the south and east sides of the field. The north side of the field will remain open to the bike trail running parallel to the river as well as the City, which will create a breathtaking backdrop for the main event."
