UPMC-Penguins sports medicine complex gets Cranberry OK
Cranberry supervisors on Thursday gave final approval to a $70 million UPMC-Penguins sports medicine complex at the Cranberry Springs development in the northeastern corner of Route 228 and Interstate 79.
The nearly 184,000-square-foot building is expected to house medical facilities and offices for UPMC, offices for the Penguins and two ice rinks that would be used for Penguins practices and by the public. UPMC will build the facility and the Penguins will lease most of it.
The building, expected to be open in 2015, is one part of several stages of proposed development for the site, which includes office and retail buildings, restaurant development and a hotel. The development also features a roundabout, or traffic circle, and would connect with extensions of Mackenzie Way and Cranberry Springs Drive.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
