Pittsburgh Penguins set to start residential development of former Civic Arena site, seek low-income tax credit from Commonwealth

The Pittsburgh Penguins and the St. Louis-based development firm McCormack Baron Salazar announced Thursday that they are ready to start development of the former Civic Arena site in the Lower Hill District, the former home of the Penguins.

The NHL team and developer submitted a letter of intent to the Pittsburgh-Allegheny County Sports & Exhibition Authority (SEA) and the city’s Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) to start the first phase of a 1,000-plus unit of residential development at the site that currently stands as a city commuter parking lot.

State regulatory review commission approves modernized taxicab regulations

State regulatory review commission approves modernized taxicab regulations

The Independent Regulatory Review Commission Thursday unanimously approved a set of final regulations from the Public Utility Commission that are aimed at modernizing the commission’s regulation of taxicabs in order to help them better compete with the recently legalized transportation network companies such as Uber and Lyft.

 

Stemming from enabling legislation in Act 85 of 2016 and Act 164 of 2016 that allowed the temporary then permanent legalization of TNCs, the legislature tasked the PUC with promulgating new regulations as they pertain to taxicab and motor carrier companies that would allow them to better compete with TNCs, which operate on a different business model than traditional taxi companies.
