The master plan for the Ninth and Penn development creates a mixed-use development spanning an entire block in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh.
The development is a vision for a mixed-use destination created to celebrate the uniqueness of Pittsburgh and the spirit of the Cultural District. The design crafts a residential development that balances experience-based design, sustainable development, and public parking garage requirements. The proposed plan adds a range of active uses to the parking program to complement the life and energy of the Cultural District. The residential towers will add 150 new luxury residences and 28 lofts units to the district in Phase 1, 2 & 3, along with 34,000 square feet of restaurants, cafes, retail stores, boutique market, and possible cultural venues. The Phase 4 tower along the riverfront includes an additional 95 residential units and 90 parking spaces. A new, highly efficient parking garage will be constructed with seven levels above grade and 738 parking spaces.
The redevelopment plan is designed to enhance the Cultural District by creating a series of Experience Drivers to help define the architectural plan, program, and massing. The key Experience Drivers for the redevelopment are the Cultural District, restaurants and nightlife, health and wellness, terrace lifestyle, sustainable transportation, and urban living.
