The redevelopment of the former Civic Arena site will play an important role in defining Pittsburgh's future. The vision of the Pittsburgh Penguins and their public partners, including the Sports & Exhibition Authority (SEA) and the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA), is to create a vibrant, high-quality, mixed use development on the 28 acre site that will restore important historic connections, bridging the Uptown and Hill District neighborhoods with Downtown Pittsburgh. This dynamic civic project can build on the rich heritage and tradition of the Lower Hill while supporting the future of Pittsburgh's growing and diverse economy all based on sustainable principles. Working with local communities, the Penguins and their partners can leverage the year-round activity at PPG Paints Arena to provide a variety of new residential opportunities, desirable commercial office space and a wide range of street-level commercial, retail, and entertainment offerings centered around beautifully designed, well maintained and pedestrian-friendly public spaces. The possibilities are endless!
