Sapling trees and fresh asphalt.

The first road on the site is nearing completion. The 1.5 mile right-of-way has been designed to complete street standards, with:

  • stormwater management that integrates bump-outs and ponds;
  • a porous cycle track that runs most of the length, complemented with on-street bike lanes; and
  • buried utility lines.

We realize from the outside the road and bicycle lanes look complete, and they almost are! BUT for a 100-foot stretch that passes underneath a railroad bridge in the middle of the site. A protective canopy design is under design review and once approved will be constructed early next year to close this gap in the roadway. Once this gap in construction is completed, we will move forward with dedication of the roadway and bike lane to the City for public use.

This roadway will provide a safe alternative for cyclists and pedestrians to get to and from Hazelwood, as well as open the site for development. Also to note, the roadway is temporarily dubbed "Signature Boulevard," before it goes through a public dedication process to the City in 2018, a different name will be chosen.

Designing a legacy building for the future.

The Mill 19 project includes the adaptive reuse of a 180,000-square foot, existing structure that will be redeveloped in three phases by the Regional Industrial Development Corporation (RIDC) for a total of 280,000 square feet of leasable space on three floors once completed. Portions of the existing structure will be maintained as an industrial artifact that reflects and honors Pittsburgh’s past. A new three-story building will be built within the artifact structure to accommodate a mix of tech, research and development, and light industrial uses with the flexibility and innovative features required for tomorrow’s workers. If you have additional questions about the Mill 19 building, please get in touch with RIDC directly.
