Dick's Sporting Goods expanding its headquarters campus.

The latest development news is Dick's Sporting Goods is about to expand its current headquarters located just north of one of the runways at Pittsburgh International Airport.  They apparently will construct another building to be built on a piece of land about 73 acres in size.  Indications seem to be that this building will be immediately to the east of the existing headquarters building.  If that is the case, it will occupy land that was originally proposed to hold a cargo storage and distribution facility.  If that is the case; if Dicks will now occupy this land, I guess it would be safe to say that the cargo facility will not come to fruition.  That would be a shame, but apparently cargo demand seems to have subsided.  Nonetheless, a major expansion of a local Fortune 500 company is still a positive thing for the region.  Full stories are available at post-gazette.com and at triblive.com.

Any thoughts are welcome.
