The Pittsburgh Penguins now have until Oct. 22, 2025 to finish redevelopment of the former Civic Arena site, but that extension came with non-negotiable conditions, the Post-Gazette reported. One condition? Give up nearly 40 percent of parking revenue from the site if 10.75 acres aren't developed in six years. Even though the URA approved this new deal, not every member is happy with it.
The annual holiday tradition is back: From shopping to ice skating to tree lighting ceremonies, concerts and more, there's bound to be something to put you in a festive mood. The fireworks finale is set to start at 9:38 p.m.
Where: Downtown Pittsburgh
When: November 17, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.
