 RIDA Development Corp. is purchasing the 465-room Radisson Hotel Pittsburgh, which it will reflag as the DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh - Green Tree. A $15 million renovation, to begin immediately, will include a makeover of all guest rooms, the addition of a new entryway and lobby, and an update of all of the hotel's public spaces, including two restaurants, a sports bar, a health club and the more than 30,000 square feet of meeting space. The property will begin operating as a DoubleTree this coming November, with all renovations scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2012.
