Pittsburgh Lower Hill District – Center of Energy
Intergen Real Estate Group
A reimagining that will be a defining moment in the future of Pittsburgh, the redevelopment of the Penguins’ former Civic Arena site will reconnect the historic Hill District neighborhood to the city’s bustling urban downtown. Currently a grey-field parking area for the NHL team’s new arena opened in 2010, the 28-acre site will transform into a dynamic new and sustainable mixed-use neighborhood including business, residential, entertainment and community green space. The master plan—to be implemented by a multi-firm design and development collaborative—envisions a “center of energy” for the city with up to 1,420 units of housing, 810,000 square feet of office space, 190,000 square feet of retail, 50,000 square feet of entertainment, a 220-room hotel and nearly five acres of parks and green space.
