Pittsburgh Laurels & Lances

Laurel: To Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation and Preservation Pittsburgh. The groups have joined forces in seeking a historic landmark designation for Mellon (nee, the Civic) Arena. The Penguins, the 41-year-old building’s primary tenant, want to tear it down to build a mixed-use complex. The ‘Guins hope to build, with public help, a new hockey arena.

But Landmarks President Arthur Ziegler says the arena, which features what once was the world’s largest retractable domed roof, is worth saving for other uses – if they can be found. He’s right.
