Entertainment Complex Proposed For North Fayette

NORTH FAYETTE (KDKA) — A couple of transplanted Pittsburghers say they want to bring the same type of entertainment complex they’ve built in Florida to this area.

Brent Brown is a graduate of Montour High School. He and his business partners want to turn the empty Roomful Express building in North Fayette into a $14 million entertainment complex called Latitude 40 with restaurants, a sports bar, bowling alleys a movie theater and a Las Vegas style theater, similar to ones in Jacksonville and Indianapolis.

North Fayette’s community development director is excited because of the 200 jobs it will create and because it uses an already existing building.

“We would prefer people going into buildings that are empty, reusing buildings that are already here instead of building new buildings and destroying the green space that’s in North Fayette that a lot of people have come to love about North Fayette,” Brian Temple said.

North Fayette’s a long way from two of Pittsburgh’s biggest entertainment centers, the Strip District and the South Side, but Brown believes that his entertainment center will stand alone.

“We’re not so much a club as we are a place where adults can go and relax, have a good time, do some bowling, see a movie, see a live show and have great food,” Brown said.

Brown says if the permit process goes smoothly, he hopes to open the complex by next summer.

    Congratulations to a local entrepreneur! Good look getting past the corrupted system in place who only seeks maximum return on the things that bring them pleasure.

    That is a great idea! I will definitely be checking this place out! However, they should instead use the empty showcase cinema west building. It is larger in size I believe and it already has the theaters set up – keep a few theaters and tear the others down for a bowling alley and restaurants!
