  1. The arena development continues to evolve. After a delay that upset the Penguins, board OKs preliminary plans for new FNB HQ at former arena site The Pittsburgh Penguins are back in the development business and the new First National Bank headquarters at the former Civic Arena site is back on track after the city’s Urban Redevelopment Authority approved plans for the 26-story office tower Thursday.
  2. It's been mentioned on other city related sites as well. I have never read anything official, but it's been repeated a lot over years.
  3. So odd that this is even an issue. Ohio is the midwest. PA is not. While I would prefer that the Great Lakes would be the main region that Ohio is associated with because the "midwest" is too broad, it is what it is.
  4. I don't even think to compare city population differences when it comes to such varied political borders. That's what metros are for. City population is arbitrary in a way. But as noted, no matter how you slice it, Austin is boomin'.
  5. These types of destination are dominated by chains. Local options are exceptions. Yes, some chains are better than others, but whether it be The Banks, Atlantic Station or the new Battery in Atlanta and similar places in other cities... it's like the are templates for chains.
  6. I believe that he lives in Chicago, but had lived in Indy for some time. He mostly writes about the Midwest, but not exclusively. His comments section can get lively at times.
  7. These homes and buildings are awesome and deserve to be in better shape.
  8. It's good to see Montgomery county stable, but unfortunate that the city of Dayton is still bleeding people.
  9. The question, without a doubt, inherently make it likely that legal residents might not fill out the form... and that it the sole intention of the question.
  10. Busy news week. That said, the Penguins development is a believe it when ground is broken thing considering how they keep pushing it back. Yet another reason why sports teams have no place in the development business. This news sounds more imminent though. 'Let’s do something great’ — Penguins unveil big new vision for former Arena site
  11. I hate that this happened. Youngstown just can't get a break. As mentioned, it's not large enough to have other assets, but at the same time it is large enough - and has some geographical advantages that I hope finally get leveraged and realized.
  12. Agreed. I mean, it's ok, but maybe it will look a little better built...
  13. Office complex could be the latest addition to Station Square
  14. I'm not sure if Pittsburgh is developing more than the 3Cs. Maybe if either towers I noted above today get built, but overall, I would think that more is happening in the Cs. Regarding population, it's complicated, but the short answer is that the massive lose of steel (and related) jobs starting in the 70s, but exploding in 80s caused an additional burden on population growth - even as portions of the metro started to gain in migration, the overall population change would still be a net loss due to natural decline. The exodus of 30+ years ago created a unique issue for the metro of more deaths than births every year. Most metros - even ones with net migration loss, still have even modest gains from births. Not Pittsburgh.
