Located on 178 acres of open, plateau land along the Monongahela River, Hazelwood Green is Pittsburgh’s last urban brownfield and largest remaining riverfront tract. The former steel mill site is envisioned as a model for sustainable development encompassing a mix of offices, research and development, light manufacturing, housing, and retail, with public open spaces and trails. Development is moving forward with a goal of achieving USGBC LEED for Neighborhood Development Gold certification, with the Pittsburgh p4 Performance Measures in mind.
A collaborative effort led by the site’s philanthropic foundation owners, the City of Pittsburgh, and surrounding neighborhoods is underway to ensure that the site remains closely knit to the Hazelwood community; offers walkable and bikeable connections within the site, and to the riverfront and connecting city trails; and contributes to the revitalization of the neighborhood.
Hazelwood Green’s location provides access to nearby neighborhoods; to the business, university, medical and research communities of Oakland; and to the amenities, culture, sports, and quality of life that come from being in the midst of an urban setting.
