    PITTSBURGH - A new player is working toward buying one of downtown Pittsburgh’s most visible and longest empty buildings.

    Sources familiar with the plan indicate that Johnstown-based Zamias Services, working with an investment partner, is in line as the leading bidder to buy the former Pittsburgh Post-Gazette building, which the newspaper vacated in recent years after it moved its printing operations to a new facility in Findlay Township and its administrative and editorial team to the North Shore.
