Hi, I live in Colorado and my brother lives in Pittsburg. There's lots of cool stuff to check out there. Unfortunately my brother is a little bit of a wuss so if you'd like to go exploring the next time in the area let me know. (I have lots of photos but unfortunately they're larger then 100k so I can't post them - if you'd like to see some, email me)

So, here's a little info on the "Pittsburg Skyscrapper" - it was built in 1926 and is named after Alexander Besse - the actual name is the Besse Hotel. It's 12 stories high and closed in 1979. In 2006 it was purchased by Garrison Properties. They plan on building 46 units on the site. Currently the site is listed as a "rehabilitation tax credit project" and is on the "pending" section of the companies website.
Apparently the city of Pittsburg bought a site nearby and created parking spaces for the hotel but due to some problems with the tax credits and the failure of the housing market the place is still sitting in its current condition.

I plan to visit the site again soon, just in case someone actually gets around to turning it into "multi-family housing".
