Crews are out repainting the building and adding prominent towers on both sides to spruce up the shopping center on the outskirts of Carnegie.
The Glenn Scott Plaza on Washington Avenue is getting a facelift. Crews are out repainting the building and adding prominent towers on both sides to spruce up the shopping center on the outskirts of Carnegie. A new Dollar Tree also recently opened in the strip mall. The reconstruction comes about seven months after a car crashed through the front of the Tomatoes pizza shop. However, the facelift is to make the strip mall more attractive and not tied to that crash. Click above to watch a panoramic video of work being done on the shopping center.
