PDCDC held its premier event the Pittsburgh Developers Forum where the direction of billions of dollars in real estate capital is discussed. There’s no surprises here. A bunch of people take a stage and tell you what they think. Don’t let it fool you. It’s rather insightful to see how a $22 Million Dollar decision is made.

The largest announcement reported by the traditional press was the hope something could be done with the Iron City Brewery. Core Realty mentioned it had pending arrangements to purchase the old building which has become an eye sore.

The panelists were: Ray Gastil – Pittsburgh City Planning, Todd Reidbord – Walnut Capital, Lucas Piatt – Millcraft Investments, Herky Pollock – CBRE, Randy Mineo – Core Realty
