Redevelopment Authority Launches “Downtown Destinations” Commercial Property Web Site

The Redevelopment Authority of the County of Westmoreland unveiled a new website designed to promote business development in the County's core communities. "Downtown Destinations" showcases marketable properties in the County's cities and boroughs that are available for business expansions or new enterprise. The website is available through the Westmoreland County homepage at

The new website features properties in the towns’ business districts, as well as those properties located within a state Keystone Innovation Zone - an initiative designed to foster innovation and create entrepreneurial opportunities. "Our downtowns have been the historic hubs of our communities, and this is part of our renewed efforts to keep them vibrant and ensure their long-term vitality," said April Kopas, Executive Director of the Redevelopment Authority of the County of Westmoreland. Feature properties are located within the communities of Arnold, Derry, Greensburg, Irwin, Jeannette, Latrobe, Lower Burrell, Monessen, Mount Pleasant, New Kensington, Scottdale, Vandergrift, West Newton and West Overton.

“Downtown Destinations” is a cooperative effort of the Redevelopment Authority, the Economic Growth Connection of Westmoreland, the Westmoreland-Fayette Workforce Investment Board, the Private Industry Council and Westmoreland County’s Geographic Information Systems Department. “This project is a great opportunity to market our town” said Jeff Landy, Mount Pleasant Borough Manager. “With the County’s support, municipalities can better attract businesses to take a closer look at the benefits of operating a business in a downtown. We could not have done this on our own, and we greatly value our partnership with the county and our neighboring towns.”
