Wednesday: Sparkle, Sparkle!

A month after battering the design as bland and too mall-like, planning commission members voted unanimously in favor of the project after architects tweaked certain elements to address their concerns. (P-G, Mark Belko)

As you can now see, the building will utilize electric power.

Asked about the criticisms commission members made of the Uptown arena's design April 8, Sawyer said: "The last time they didn't see what was shown today, the evening shot, which really tells the story of this design. The atrium in the front allows everyone to see the energy and electricity inside." (Trib, Jeremy Boren)

    GO PENS!

  2. Pat Dowd - after watching your performance in Council today (WED 7th of May)all I can say is grow up.

    Nice move trying to hang 4 other members out to dry with your self serving nonsense. You go on and on about pricipals and then you tank and abstain. Grow up, smell the coffee, read a book. Do something instead of pontificating.

    If you had any principals at all you would have voted no. Instead you carped at the other members for hours and then got back up there and rode the fence you usually like to sit on.

    More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Comet.
