Cinergy newest addition to Newbury Market in South Fayette
A new tenant has been unveiled for Newbury Market, which is doubling down on becoming an entertainment destination for Allegheny County.
EQA Landmark Communities President and Newbury founder Brett Malky announced Cinergy will build a 90,000-square-foot facility at Newbury.
Cinergy, a Texas-based entertainment company, is looking to expand. This will be its first location east of the Mississippi River.
“Cinergy is probably the coolest entertainment concept in the entire country, other than Topgolf, who’s killing,” Malky said.
Jared Imperatore, vice president for retail brokerage at JLL, said the complex will feature 11 movie screens, bowling, zip lines, virtual reality gaming and two places to eat.
Imperatore also mentioned the previously announced projects of Pet Palace and Ascend, which will build an indoor rock-climbing facility.
He also said a 46,000-square-foot go-cart facility, brewery and high-end steakhouse are concepts that will be coming.
Topgolf became the first tenant to open in Newbury Market last year.
Proposals sought for former Star City site
South Fayette commissioners are taking another shot at selling the former Star City property.
Commissioners authorized a request for proposals to purchase and develop the 8.5-acre plot off Route 50.
Township commissioners rejected two proposals last year, one for $1.5 million and another for $2.8 million.
This time, the request includes a minimum purchase price of $3 million.
The property was acquired by the township in 2009, soon after the movie theater closed. Initial plans were to develop a community center at the location.
In 2017, Horizon Properties Group pulled out of a $5 million deal to purchase the plot from the township.
Commissioners said they are hoping this request bears a deal they can accept.
