The hole that was Market Square

February 26, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Yup, this it it, the New Market Square.

Ok … it’s what your seeing right now (and you thought the potholes were bad on the streets).

Click Here if you want to see the new plan, and why this is the way it is. If you click on the picture, it will actually take you to the main Market Square site, where you can get more info, go the their blog, etc.

BTW, this pic was taken with our new high tech Vivitar Mini Digital Camera, and we are starting a new photo blog so you can see Pittsburgh in a high tech, low res, keychain hangin’ way.  Click Here to go to it.

Having been at numerous earlier gatherings in Market Square, personally I think the renovations are wonderful.  Making the square one solid area keeps me and others from getting picked off by cars passing through.  The designs are definitely more up to date, stylish, and compliment the new buildings and skyline seen from that area.  Going through that area during it’s transition from the 90s to now, your experiences became that of avoiding drug dealers, drunks, and general unwanteds.  When it’s complete, I see more people opening shops in the area, great living spaces, and an area that you would want to work around.

This is one of those situations where something has to be broken back down to nothing to make it beautiful again.  Check it out … this could now be considered Pittsburgh’s biggest pothole, but it’s a good one … it brings something new.
