The Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre next week will begin demolishing a former restaurant supply building on Liberty Avenue as part of the final phase of an expansion that began in 2009.

The demolition will make room for a 35-space parking lot next to the ballet theater's studios in the Strip District. During the past four years, the theater added its first dormitory, new floors in five dance studios and expanded a reception area.

The new parking lot and the building of an annex with three new studio spaces will complete the expansion.
