I agree that the East Liberty project is very, very underwhelming. However, it's mostly a rehab/reskin, with what looks like the cheapest of cheap of two-story infill buildings being constructed in an area where a vacant lot now sits. I think a lot of this comes from Anthony Dolan's firm not being that well capitalized (since he's blowing most of his wad on the new building at the corner of Penn and Centre). It's at least a modest step up from what's there before, and considering the area is surrounded on all sides (save the AA building) by parking lots, anything to get the ball rolling in this dead zone seems like a good thing. I do really hope the Planning Commission holds out for at minimum rotating the new construction building 90 degrees. But even worse crap like the new Arbys has been given the go-ahead in the Baum-Centre corridor, so I won't get my hopes up.

"District 15" is apparently going no where super fast. "Breaking ground September 2017" obviously hasn't happened yet. CBRE's website shows none of it has been leased yet, either. Kind of too bad, as this would take a chunk of the surface lots. (It is across Smallman from the old Wholey building.)





Science Center addition from Point State Park.

They're putting up some signage on my wife's building today. (Four Gateway Center.) The sign is actually for Gateway Health and is unrelated to the buildings themselves.

That's the Science Center addition, not the casino hotel.

Oh yeah, good call. I thought it was kind of small. I didn't even think about it being on the wrong side of the Science Center.

Edited.

I've been wondering about the status of the casino hotel. Work was expected to start in the spring after plans got past an issue with a "paper street," but no signs of a groundbreaking yet.

Curbed did a short profile on Hamnett Place in Wilkinsburg, which is very cool for Wilkinsburg:

The only projects I can think of is that blue office building in the Southside Works and the ALDI store garage project in Friendship.
