Targeted Development Sites


Neighborhood: Hazelwood


Second Avenue offers an aggregation of parcels in the heart of the Hazelwood commercial district along Irvine Street at Hazelwood Avenue. Major development plans will dramatically influence the face of this neighborhood, as redevelopment of the 250-acre former LTV Coke Works site begins. The parcels provide substantial acreage along both sides of Irvine Street and frontage for redevelopment in a community ripe for investment.

Neighborhood: South Oakland


The Pittsburgh Technology Center (PTC) is a state-of-the-art riverfront office park and regional center for research and development. PTC provides an attractively designed, high-quality environment to meet the needs of both established and new companies involved in the development or application of advanced technologies. The University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University have joined forces with the business community to make this development a success. The campus like setting combines tree-covered walkways and a greensward with grasses and wildflowers.

Several sites are available, all with nearby parking facilities (now under construction). Site plans will double the office space at the park and incorporate a greater degree of mixed-use projects to enhance its attractiveness to potential and existing park tenants. The first phase of the spine road relocation is now complete and offers frontage for three parcels. The second phase will open opportunities for two additional sites while accommodating expansion of existing buildings. Utilities are available. Download this RFP.
