Not really, daviderik. If there's no residential, perhaps it means that there didn't USED TO BE demand, but perhaps there is, especially now that Pittsburgh is growing again. It also might mean that the owners of Station Square were more interested in just sitting on their land waiting for it to increase in value for years before they decided to do anything with the excess surface parking! Thankfully, the new soccer stadium is taking care of a lot of that parking!
Station Square really isn't that much of a tourist trap, at least other than the Gateway Clipper and Hard Rock Cafe. Otherwise it's just a pretty nice, albeit somewhat dated, place to hang out during a weeknight or a weekend afternoon/evening.
