Preliminary plans for Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC’s development of a portion of the former Star City property were presented by representatives from UPMC and IKM, to the South Fayette Township commissioners.

The building is to be constructed on about 2.64 acres adjacent to the former Star City Theater. A total of 11.6 acres, including the land owned by the township, is being subdivided in order to accommodate a new driveway and extra traffic lanes. Two lot lines are set to be moved to keep the acreage almost identical to the way it was.

The building, which will house pediatric outpatient services, will be four stories with a total of 60,000 square feet. The building is also set to be LEED certified. The parking lot will have 190 spaces with an additional 60 spaces for the township that UPMC may be able to use at peak times. The main entrance to the building will be off of Route 50. While the building is under construction, the Port Authority bus path to the park-and-ride will be moved to a temporary location.

UPMC is working with Pittsburgh architect IKM Inc. on the site plans. Commissioners should be set to vote on the preliminary plans at its Jan. 16 meeting.

In another matter, preliminary plans for a new major subdivision in South Fayette were presented at the Jan. 9 meeting. Walnut Ridge would be located off of Battleridge Road and would consist of 90 single-family home lots. Patrick Cooper of Gateway Engineers said the plan will be an open-space development. The homes set to be located there could range in price from $400,000 to $450,000.

Commissioners will consider approving the preliminary plans for the subdivision at the Jan. 16 meeting.
