More likely than not, it's going to be torn down to make room for either a parking lot and/or a street connecting downtown.
I did read this recently though....
Developer Wants To Use Mellon Arena Roof For New Office Building

PITTSBURGH -- It may be the last season for Mellon Arena, but its distinctive roof may live on even if the rest of the arena is demolished.
A developer wants to save part of the dome and use it for the construction of a new office building.
The building is planned for the Stone Quarry Crossing at Interstate 279 and Camp Horne Road.
The project is still in the early stages of planning and there is still a push to save Mellon Arena from the wrecking ball.
