We are now piling up a list of projects in Pittsburgh that had been temporarily shelved in spite of our unemployment rate hovering well under 7.2%.
The projects that I'm aware of that have been shelved:
- The "crowning jewel" of the SouthSide Works complex - a hotel/condo funtime
- The entertainment complex on the North Side - not a hotel but still postponed - supposedly still starting the hotel
- The Bloomfield hotel project -shelved because of disagreements but secretly the developer was relieved to get more financing time
- And last but certainly not least the Cultural District Riverfront Development megaproject
Of course, sometimes, the delay isn't because of financing, it's because of hooking up the utilities. Even Hofbrauhaus has to wait for the cable guy.
