Pittsburgh Historic Landmarks: Terminal Warehouse

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
The Pittsburgh Terminal Warehouse is one of the largest, historically significant symbols of Pittsburgh’s industrial past.  Positioned within walking distance of Pittsburgh’s educational hubs and across the river from Downtown, the 1.1 million sf complex of buildings that once served as a rail distribution facility for industrial materials is being repositioned to fuel the need for innovative live/work mixed-use space by the City’s burgeoning tech industry.

Perkins Eastman’s design rehabilitates two underutilized buildings, which serve as the anchors of a new waterfront district on the south side of Pittsburgh along the Monongahela River. The large historic buildings provide tech/flexible office space, unique residential units, and supporting uses, framing a High Line-like promenade that overlooks the river to Downtown.

This mixed-use project includes over 675,000 sf of office space, 93 new residential units, 33,000 sf retail space, parking for 700 cars within the buildings, and bike parking positioned along the new riverfront bike trails.
