Aren't these stories a gold mine for them?
Other than the tour of Columbus last month, I haven't heard BOO! since then.
What's the deal?

If they take on Forest City directly and both bids get dragged down... then Bardens group becomes the dark horse and wins by default.
I'm not sure that I'd take that strategy, but its possible that it explains whats happening.
Where are the leaders of the Hill District when you need them? They're the first to complain about things, but I don't see Udin out there campaigning for the Pens. I think they are really dropping the ball too. I know they came out early in favor of the plan.. but now???

Firewaters was going out of business, and once they got their liquor license back is going strong again. There's the new hotel, and the new buildings with the Wake and new garage. There is even new business development with the large Del Monte building, and the new office complex on the other side of PNC with the large courtyard. The Warhol museum is planning an expansion based on all this, instead of moving out to Oakland, which was planned about a year ago.
I definitely didn't expect any of this to occur around there. I assumed we'd see a few new buildings put up to remain empty. It was refreshing last year to walk over to PNC and see how busy the area was on a non-game day just for a lunch time crowd. I look forward to the spring and being able to do this again, and I think the All Star game will only help things, at least for the next few years. We just need to keep things going the right direction, which is in the hands of the exact same people we need to get things rolling to keep the Pens here.
