That's not the piece that caught my eye; Pop City didn't break this story. This is the piece that caught my eye:
"A new $48 million mixed-use development is coming to SouthSide Works. Spearheaded by DOC-Economou, the project will feature a 140-room upscale hotel, for-sale condos, a world-class spa, and event, office and retail space."
That's a great quote, and it's something that didn't make it into the Post-Gazette report of this deal. The P-G did note that Phil Hugh is from Fairchance, Fayette County.
The complex calls for a variety of upscale eateries, such as a sushi restaurant
and steakhouse. “We’re doing projects all over the country—Pittsburgh is my hometown. We like that we can give back and create jobs from a hospitality and career perspective,” adds [Phil Hugh, with DOC-Economou], who says that 400 temporary and full-time construction jobs and 100 hotel and hospitality jobs will be created. “We’re working in concert with SouthSide Works to deliver the best possible project to Pittsburgh."
