Pittsburgh City Council unanimously approved plans Wednesday for a controversial Walgreens drug store in Point Breeze.
Construction could begin as early as April, once the city Planning Department approves a site plan.

Neighbors of the proposed 14,550-square-foot store at the corner of Penn and Braddock avenues for months have objected to Paradise Development Group’s plan to raze three Victorian houses to make way for a two-lane drive-through window attached to the store.

In a compromise reached in September and OK’d yesterday, Paradise agreed to knock down only one home, which Paradise will purchase.
