Plans for a UPMC Children's Hospital outpatient center and for the Newbury retail and housing complex are progressing in South Fayette, development representatives told township commissioners Wednesday night.
UPMC plans to build an $18.5 million pediatric clinic at the Interstate 79 interchange in Bridgeville. UPMC has been working with consulting firm Fahringer, McCarty, Grey Inc. of Monroeville and architect IKM Inc. of Pittsburgh to develop a "creative site plan," said Roger Altmeyer, UPMC's director of community project development.
A preliminary layout for 2.6 acres includes a three-story pediatric center.
UPMC hopes to submit a formal development application this fall and begin construction in the spring.
Meanwhile, Newbury project manager Eric Newhouse said construction could start in about a year on Newbury Market, a retail, hotel, office and housing complex that will be bordered by Route 50 and Presto-Sygan Road.
The first phase will include a 92,000-square-foot Giant Eagle, a 20,000-square-foot Courtyard Marriott hotel, office buildings and various retail stores, he said.
He hopes to start construction this fall on Newbury Village, a 250-unit garden-apartment complex slated for Oakridge Road.
"We're making very good progress," Mr. Newhouse said.
