Many a Pittsburgh resident has seen the sad shape of Pittsburgh’s Uptown (a.k.a. Soho) neighborhood today. It’s sprinkling of old buildings awash in a sea of parking lots. And all of those parking lots are owned by one man, Sal Williams. Many a community advocate has been puzzled and stymied by this accumulation of parking lots. An article in the Pittsburgh Business Times indicates that more parking lots (i.e. further destruction of the Pittsburgh urban fabric) are on their way.
