This tour covers the northern half of a street that the American Planning Association designated one of America’s Ten Great Streets in 2012. From the First English Evangelical Lutheran Church to The Pennsylvanian apartment building (formerly Union Station), and with fine examples of modern buildings in between, this part of Grant Street is populated by outstanding architecture.
Examples of adaptive re-use of historic buildings in this corridor demonstrate the economic value of historic preservation. Tour participants also will learn of the wide influence—sometimes explicit, other times less so—of businessman, philanthropist, politician, art collector, and Pittsburgh native Andrew W. Mellon on this important street.
