    Part of me wants to say that young adults just don’t want to drive as much (there’s some wisdom there). And with more mixed-use areas being built, they don’t have to.

    I don’t live in Pittsburgh (I just know the city from the beat downs my Capitals dish out on the Penguins) but I recall that Station Square has no residences, right? And that for anyone to go, there’s at least a 10 minute drive or commute given the terrain. That doesn’t seem like much, but I sense, more and more, that for retail to survive it has to have a walkable base. And of course, restaurants are the “new retail” since there’s a much reduced demand for stores selling goods. I recall that Station Square has restaurants but again, no “regulars” that can walk home after a meal and a couple of pops.

    Am I close in my assessment? I haven’t been in about 5 years.
