'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Another step in the development of a new shopping center in South Fayette has been completed with the demolition of a shuttered gas station.

Demolition began Tuesday on the Bridgeville Fuel Stop — formerly an Exxon gas station — which is included in the development plan along with the former Ionics property behind the gas station.

Developers of The Crossings at South Fayette so far have announced only that the eight-acre site along Washington Pike near the Interstate 79 Bridgeville interchange will include an Aldi store.

The complex will include about three buildings with numerous tenants.

Developer Dale Greco, of Bridgeville Realty Partners in Franklin Park, said that while Aldi is the only confirmed tenant, he hopes to announce additional retail tenants in the next month.

In addition to the Aldi complex, a 16,000-square-foot building adjacent to the complex currently is being marketed to national retailers and restaurants.

Ron Sofranko, a Wexford-based restaurant consultant involved with the project, said the development will be good for the area.

“It's really a hot zone over there,” he said. “And it's a really underserved area.”

He cited a growing South Fayette School District and sound median income in the area as indicators of a need for development.

“There just isn't a lot in that corridor,” he said. “The area is ripe for a spurt in restaurant growth.”

Greco said that in addition to the actual shopping center construction, two new turning lanes will be added to the intersection of Washington Pike and Millers Run Road – one southbound and one northbound.

“We hope to be delivering product in the second quarter of 2014,” he said.
