The 178-acre Hazelwood Green is envisioned by the three foundation members of Almono LLC as a living laboratory and place for experimentation that adapts to fast changing markets and embraces Pittsburgh’s newly evolving innovation economy. This economic platform is being created within a sustainable development framework that supports the well-being of human and ecological systems now and in the future.
The site’s development will both catalyze investment within its underserved neighborhood of Hazelwood, and draw from the deep history and culture that remains intact through the people and the physical fabric of the neighborhood. There is no site of this scale and potential that is more uniquely situated within the urban context of the Pittsburgh region; where research and talent is grown and fostered within premier universities, local neighborhoods remain unique and affordable, and the real estate market demands creative financial solutions.
The multi-dimensional opportunities presented by this site and its neighborhood require a thoughtful and collaborative approach to development that respects the past and reflects its present- day culture, while also creating new and lasting models for urban place-making. Through this collective vision and the site goals, Almono LLC expects to create a future for this site that provides economic opportunities for all and serves as a regenerative steward of its unique natural assets.
