Really? I have two Audis and I don't live in any of those places. Weird!

I think he was just a regular run of the mill Republican. And lost pretty handily with only 38% of the vote.

Wow, interesting design and good on UPMC. Couple this expansion with the one happening at the U of Penn, CHOP, and medical research campus at Schuykill Yards project in Philly right now and the residents of the state will have lots of medical advancement and options available.

Just one metric but as of 2012 Pennsylvania was already 8th in the nation in per capita active physicians.

The Penguins plan to start with a hotel/entertainment complex and adjacent open space:

Not necessarily a surprise since this is most beneficial to their business running an arena.

Will that Audi dealership have a huge lot with cars on it? Or are all the cars going to be inside that building? Either way, it will be cool to see new development on that side of the road.

Honestly, this sounds like it will be pretty cool. A lot of nice stuff in the building, plus room for 190+ cars in the "parking deck".

The three-story, 19,000 square-foot structure’s first level will feature multi-vehicle, drive-thru service reception. It will also feature an exclusive Audi Sport area that’s only found in a select few Audi locations worldwide. The stunning “Jewel Box” architectural design will highlight high-performance R8 and RS models.

An expansive 2nd-floor showroom will showcase more top-of-the-line vehicles, while the 3rd-floor mezzanine will house offices and conference rooms. All floors will also have relaxation areas so customers can kick back in luxury. And there will even be a rooftop entertainment area with panoramic views of the Downtown skyline.

The exterior will also boast a 190+ vehicle parking deck. This will hold new and pre-owned vehicles and an eco-friendly, “green wall.”
If this is open before we move offices, this is definitely where I'll be bringing my car for inspection. (It helps that it's only 3 blocks away too.)

Shell is ready to start construction on the main cracker complex, which will create a (temporary) surge in construction jobs:

For that spot, that Audi dealership is a pretty cool project.

Uber is expanding in Lawrenceville:

Random aside, but not surprisingly a RAND study found the sooner we get autonomous cars on the road, the more lives we will save:

Not sure how much all of you are familiar with "autonomous" cars, but basically, they are divided up into 6 categories. Level 0, no functionality through Level 5, fully autonomous/no driver. Right now the highest level in production for the public is Level 2 (Audi/Tesla) with a tiny amount of limited Level 3 (Cadillac) sprinkled in.

The problem with going further up the ladder than Level 2 is that until you can achieve Level 5, accidents will almost certainly go UP because humans would need to intervene when the computers can't figure out what to do. And human drivers become exponentially LESS likely to be able to effectively take over when they are allowed to zone out for extended periods of time, as further autonomy hypothetically allows them to do.

Not sure if I am interpreting this wrong, but will there be a 900-foot tall cooling tower involved with the project?
