Published on

This panel discussion of collaborative participants will explore the challenges and opportunities of thoughtful urban development through the revitalization of existing brownfield sites and connectivity with the riverfront, while accommodating commercial leasing considerations in an urban context. 3 Crossings is a 20-acre mixed-use development situated along Smallman and Railroad Streets, bound by 25th and 29th Streets in the vibrant and revitalized Strip District neighborhood of Pittsburgh. The development integrates the neighborhood’s historic and authentic past as a market district with the desired lifestyle of today’s employee, resident, and visitor. 3 Crossings will reconnect the neighborhood to a revitalized riverfront with up to 375,000 SF of office space, 300 residential units, 1,200 parking spaces, a multimodal transportation facility, and riverfront trail. The presentation and discussion will focus on the team’s community engagement and design approach behind its vision to create a vibrant and active interpretation of the Strip District that pays homage to the neighborhood’s industrial heritage, while balancing design with public policies, economic realities, sustainability, and challenging site conditions.
