MULTI-SPORT COMPLEX PROPOSED FOR PITTSBURGH'S NORTH SHORE

     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).
