The Pittsburgh Planning Commission yesterday approved a proposal to build a nine-story, metal and glass building with an Asian design flavor at the SouthSide Works.
Specifically, the commission had to allow the building to be taller than 75 feet, because the zoning for SouthSide Works restricts all but three buildings to that height.
The proposed Surety Center would be 100 feet tall. The developer, Surety Pittsburgh, and Pfaffman and Associates architects are tailoring the building, in part, as an incubator for Asian businesses.

[Aha. Pop City had a story on this earlier, though the coverage was from the real estate angle, not the incubator angle.
