Market Square Opening

Although it never fully closed, Market Square was fully reopened at a small ceremony on Tuesday morning. Mayor Luke Ravenstahl joined Rob Stephany of The Urban Redevelopment Authority, Mike Edwards of the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership and Jason Capps, owner of Bella Sera- Urban Trattoria and others to celebrate the completion of the renovation.

"Today our vision for this public space became a reality," he said, referring to the closure of the roads that ran through the historic space, widened sidewalks, tree plantings and making the square more of a public space with plenty of outdoor seating.

The renovations cost $5 million dollars.
