Pittsburgh, PA - Pittsburgh’s oldest Orthodox Jewish synagogue is now the only building the city-county Sports & Exhibition Authority must buy and demolish before construction can begin on the Penguin’s $290 million Uptown arena.

The authority OK’d spending $762,000 today to buy a surface parking lot at 1205 Fifth Ave. from Teris Parking.

That leaves the nearby Beth Hamedrash Hagodol-Beth Jacob synagogue, which is a “high priority” for the SEA to acquire so it can make way for the arena.

A ground-breaking for the arena hasn’t been set, Conturo said, but the Pens are slated to open the 2010 season in the new arena.
