PNC Firstside Center (2003 Commonwealth Award Winner)

Public Infrastructure Projects
The PNC Firstside Center is a commercial redevelopment of a brownfield in Pittsburgh’s Central Business District, incorporating green building techniques and over 33% open space.  The project was instrumental in the development of a new light rail station and is adjacent to other public transportation systems and an existing bike trail.  PNC Firstside Center represents an extraordinary example of integrating urban revitalization principles with strong public transportation conduits, existing infrastructure, site amenities, strong architectural design, materials and energy conservation, and augmentation of health for occupants.
