A 28-acre, mixed-use development in the heart of Downtown Pittsburgh. Buccini/Pollin has been selected by an affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins to create and implement a master plan for the surface parking lots across Centre Avenue from PPG Paints Arena, home to the Penguins and host to 160 entertainment events annually. BPG is working closely with several redevelopment partners on the site of the old Civic Arena including award-winning design firm Gensler and lead residential developer Intergen – a Pittsburgh-based, minority-owned housing developer.
The 28-acre site will feature a mix of residential, commercial/office, retail/entertainment and food venues. In all, the new master plan calls for over 800,000 square feet of office, 200,000 square feet of retail, 50,000 square feet of entertainment space; a 220-guestroom hotel; and 1,000 new residential units.
A central feature to the Gensler-designed plan is the 8-acre greenway along Wylie Avenue that extends the highway cap and parkland above I-579 into and through the new district. The fully-funded cap project is on track to commence construction this summer and will be complemented by a linear public park that will anchor the redevelopment plan. Each of the development blocks in the Gensler design will feature new buildings with ground floor retail/commercial suites and access to dynamic outdoor areas. The site is well-served by public transit and major traffic arteries and boasts some of the region’s best views of the downtown, North Shore and Mount Washington.
