Local and county officials today break ground on the eight-building, $50 million Pittsburgh International Business Park in Moon Township.
Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and the Moon Township Board of Supervisors will be on hand for the event.
The shovel-ready project is a result of the completion of the Cherrington Parkway Extension to Ewing Road, according to a statement from Allegheny County spokesman Kevin Evanto.
Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Upper St. Clair, state Rep. Mark Mustio, R-Moon, and Marv Eicher, chairman of the Moon Board of Supervisors will speak at the ground-breaking, which is slated for 2:30 p.m.
The firms Continental Real Estate and Chaska Continental are set to begin work the on the first two buildings in the development.
The land is owned by the Allegheny County Airport Authority, which is leasing the 40-acre property to developers.
The park is being built on speculation—developers must construct new buildings every 18 months or risk having its lease with the airport authority terminated.
The Moon Township-based ServiceLink is the first company to lease space in the development.
No opening date for the property was immediately available.
