Mark Belko reports from Pittsburgh: "A former whiskey distillery on the Monongahela riverfront could be the latest piece of redevelopment sweeping across a massive stretch of the South Side, from Station Square to the former River Walk Corporate Centre beyond the Liberty Bridge."

The Distillery at South Shore, as the project is called, would transform a "seven-story building at 129 McKean St. into an artisan market, along with a riverfront craft whiskey distillery and a rooftop restaurant and entertainment venue." As hinted at by Belko in the passage above, the project is additionally newsworthy for its connections to surrounding redevelopment projects. Two adjacent projects along the riverfront are shaping this corner of Pittsburgh into prime real estate.

"In all, nearly half a billion dollars worth of redevelopment is in the works along the mile-long stretch between Station Square and the Highline," according to Belko. The article includes a lot more detail on each of the projects.
