The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust's vision for a 2-city-block riverfront site in downtown Pittsburgh is a vibrant, mixed-use residential destination that will be a high quality environment for downtown residents and visitors alike. To provide the best solutions to the site's challenges (which include an unengaged riverfront, existing buildings and structures, aging infrastructure and access barriers), Concord Eastridge has convened a world class design and planning team to engage the river, build environmentally aware buildings and public spaces of distinct character and merit. The project has been approved as a pilot project in the Neighborhood District LEED certification program sponsored by the U.S. Green Building Council.
RiverParc includes several residential buildings, all with ground floor retail and a mixed-use tower including retail, hotel and office uses.
Concord Eastridge was selected as the Master Developer of RiverParc in mid-2006 following an intensive and extensive qualifications and development proposal process conducted by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and their advisors, including an international jury of design, development, financial and urban renewal experts. Once selected, Concord Eastridge and its multi-disciplinary Development Team have taken the project through a comprehensive planning process. It is anticipated that the project will break ground in 2011, and deliver the first phase of residential dwelling units and streetfront retail spaces in 2013.
