Category - ReDevelopment
Pittsburgh’s sustainable and progressive redevelopment of buildings and brownfields made it a known green building leader, with continued place-based innovation in the works. Pittsburgh boasts one of the world’s few Living Buildings (with three more shaping up) and is home to at least three ecodistricts. Pittsburgh riverbanks once choked by industry are still being (re)developed in a way that reinstitutes riparian ecology and increases habitat. Work is also in progress to reweave Pittsburgh’s urban fabric sustainably by creating park land, reconnecting neighborhoods, and redeveloping places previously damaged or ignored.
