Pittsburgh's Northside community group criticizes developer over stall in CBA talks

About a month ago, Pittsburgh officials delayed a vote over a proposed Hyatt hotel in the North Side for 45 days so that the developers could meet with community representatives.

, the Northside United community group criticized the developer, Continental, because it has so far failed to meet with them, purportedly ignoring more than 100 phone calls and emails. In response, a Continental representative stated that "we are not a company that is disrespectful of a community."

Continental has about two weeks left to begin negotiations before 45 day postponement of the vote on its development elapses. A spokesperson for Continental stated that the community coalition would be contacted on Monday to set up a meeting.
