A Moon Township-based developer plans to build a five-story, 130,000-square-foot office building off the Montour Run interchange of the Parkway West. DiCicco Development Inc. announced this week that is starting the building, Westpointe Corporate Center Four without a tenant in hand—but is confident that the risk is worth it, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports. "It's just that the market is extremely tight. When you do a search for space in the Parkway West, there's one building with 70,000 square feet, there's one with 60,000 and there's nothing else," Jeremy Kronman, CBRE executive vice president marketing the space told the P-G.
