A Colosseum for Pittsburgh

Yesterday's Next Page feature, on re-purposing the shell of the Arena, was fabulous. This would create a usable Colosseum of the Alleghenies, and an instant landmark. Linking it to a renewed axis for the Hill is brilliant. Why not extend that axis through Downtown, and all the way to the Point? It's not possible to rebuild the streets themselves, but as Rob Pfaffmann notes in TNP, the Fifth Avenue corridor can and should be part of this vision.
