Ever since George Woods and Thomas Vickroy laid out the plan for the streets of Pittsburgh in 1784, Market Square has occupied an important place Downtown—geographically, economically, and culturally. In this area where the historic architecture meets recent construction, we will see how PHLF’s work has helped to revive a Downtown core that was once threatened by extensive demolition. The tour includes residential, commercial, corporate, and hotel buildings, several of which the U.S. Green Building Council has awarded its highest certifications for environmental sustainability. Together, the sites on the tour demonstrate how the combination of historic preservation and thoughtful new development can create a livable urban environment.
Tour Meeting Point: PNC Triangle Park, across from Fairmont Pittsburgh Hotel, 510 Market Street
Tour Ending Point: PNC Triangle Park
