Pittsburgh Boom?

I recently stumbled upon an article in the Post Gazette discussing the burgeoning real estate market in Pittsburgh. According to the author, "the Pittsburgh region is on the verge of another building boom, with more than $3 billion in projects underway or ready to break ground." Oddly enough, in the same sitting I also read an article discussing how entrepreneurs have tended to favor "college towns." That is particularly interesting given the recent post on the HELP blog, as well as my own post regarding creating a research-oriented, college town, focus to economic development in Pittsburgh. Maybe with a couple smart moves by our community leaders, we could bolster the growth spurt associated with real estate and advance projects that contribute to the development of a region driven by academic innovation.
