PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — With shovels at the end of hockey sticks, Penguins’ owner Mario Lemieux and UPMC’s CEO Jeffrey Romoff joined others to turn dirt Wednesday afternoon for the new UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in Cranberry Township.

virginia&gary“In 2015, the Penguins and UPMC will open this new facility with two sheets of ice, but it will be much more than a hockey rink,” said David Morehouse, president of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The rinks will also be open for public skating and youth and adult hockey.

UPMC is building the 180,000 square foot facility at a cost of $70 million, and Romoff hailed Lemieux for his special relationship to UPMC.

“We have the Austin Playrooms in seven of our hospitals which Mario and the family foundation have provided, the Lemieux sibling complex at Children’s Hospital, and most recently, our fabulous completely brand new Mario Lemieux Center for Blood Cancers,” noted Romoff.

This will be more than just a training facility for the Penguins. read more →

Cranberry Twp, Penn., July 18, 2013 – Pittsburgh Penguins and UPMC sign letter of intent with AEI owner Gary Sippel to build 180,000-square-foot development facility.  Details from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

PITTSBURGH (Post-Gazette) — The Pittsburgh Penguins and UPMC have made the development equivalent of a  goalie change in their quest to build a $70 million sports performance center  and practice rink in Cranberry.

After working with developer Don Rodgers for nearly a year to build the  complex on a 35-acre site on Route 228, they have abandoned the property for  another location less than half a mile away but closer to Interstate 79.

Travis Williams, the Penguins’ chief operating officer, said Tuesday the team  and UPMC have signed a letter of intent with developer Gary Sippel to build the  180,000-square-foot facility on a parcel adjacent to the interstate. read more →
