New Construction is coming to the Allegheny River Waterfront

 A long range plan to redevelop sites from the Strip District into Lawrenceville was announced recently.

This could mean increasing property values in the "Below Butler" neighborhoods, depending where the construction of new parks, trails and housing is going to be implemented.

 Concerns are being raised by those worried that the historic wholesale 5-block long strip building could be affected. It is hoped that the structure, which has come to symbolize the area can be saved and  integrated into the plans.
