    The closing means there are no longer any department stores in downtown Pittsburgh.

    The 13-story building for decades housed a Kaufmann’s department store before transitioning into a Macy’s.

    However, the closing of the store doesn’t mean the building will fall out of use.

    A Philadelphia developer bought the building for $15 million and has plans to build a hotel and residential units there.

    The bottom floors of the building will also include retail aspects, according to the Trib.The Macy’s store officially closed its doors at 5 p.m. Sunday.
