MULTI-SPORT COMPLEX PROPOSED FOR PITTSBURGH'S NORTH SHORE
Published April 26, 1996
Riverboat mogul John Connelly has proposed a "North Shore Entertainment Complex" for Pittsburgh that would include a new hockey arena and baseball stadium built next to a refurbished Three Rivers Stadium on the city's North Shore, according to Mark Belko of the PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE. Connelly, who presented his idea to Mayor Tom Murphy's Forbes Field II Task Force, says the complex would include a market, convention center, football practice fields, outdoor ice skating rink, amphitheater, retail shops, offices and housing. Although Connelly offered no cost estimates, he envisions the project would be funded by a public- private endeavor (Pittsburgh POST-GAZETTE, 4/25).
