The Buccini/Pollin Group (BPG), a Wilmington-based real estate development and management company, announced plans Tuesday, Jan. 7, to build a roughly 40-story office tower on the former site of the Pittsburgh Civic Arena.
BPG has been branching out from its Wilmington home in recent years as it looks for investment and development opportunities in other cities like Philadelphia, Dallas, Nashville, New Orleans, and especially Pittsburgh, where it was selected by an affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Pittsburgh Penguins to oversee a master redevelopment plan around the team’s arena.
BPG’s Managing Partner Chris Buccini called the project, which will add prominently to the city’s skyline as one of the city’s 20 tallest buildings, “one of the most significant projects in our company’s history.”
