Construction crews quickly erected a beautiful new tan and brown building in the spot where the Burger King along Washington Pike in South Fayette used to stand.
Chartiers Valley Patch posted a story in July about the new business, but several readers have sent emails asking about what is going in the prime spot.
It’s going to be a MedExpress Urgent Care Unit, and it’s going to open very soon.
That announcement disappointed some readers and energized others who were glad that the new tax base would benefit South Fayette.
Although the building looks nearly completed, it’s not known when the MedExpress will open its doors. South Fayette and company officials could not be reached for comment.
Demolition crews quickly razed the old Burger King fast food restaurant in July to make way for the medical center. Crews began demolishing the old fast food restaurant along Washington Pike on July 16 and removed the debris in a matter of days.
South Fayette Township officials said in July that the company was moving fast to build the 5,722-square-foot medical facility, which is twice as large as the fast food restaurant.
The township formally approved the new business in May. The location had remained vacant since late 2010 when the Burger King closed its doors.
