Schenley restaurant proposal gets initial OK

| Thursday, May 27, 2010

Eat 'n Park Hospitality Group's proposal to build a restaurant in Schenley Plaza, Oakland, received "conceptual approval" of the Art Commission of Pittsburgh -- but with conditions.

The commission Wednesday asked Mark Broadhurst, Eat 'n Park's director of concept development, to provide a landscaping plan for the site of its proposed $2 million restaurant, and to consider use of local artists to help design living walls and a proposed rain forest behind the restaurant.

Commission members applauded Eat 'n Park's decision to adopt recommendations they made at previous meetings. They were particularly happy over plans to provide a nearly glass wall along the Promenade walk in the plaza, the moving of the restaurant closer to Pennant Way, and providing a green roof on a portion of the building.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

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. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
