Gold 1 Parking Structure – Parksmart℠ Gold
The first project in the world designated a Parksmart℠ Gold project!
The North Shore area between PNC Park and Heinz Field is a fast-growing hub of retail, entertainment, and office uses creating demand for additional parking. This 1,000-car garage, designed for the Pittsburgh Stadium Authority, supports both daily and event parking.
The six-story precast concrete structure features a sculptural array of aluminum fins that shimmer in the sun paying homage to the glimmering Allegheny river.
Features include electric vehicle charging stations, 100% motion activated LED lighting, a tire inflation station, bio-swales to reduce rainwater runoff, a secure indoor bicycle parking and service area for 100 bikes, and provisions for a solar PV array.
The 330,000 sf garage is the first Parksmart Gold certified parking structure in the world.
Parksmart℠ is the world’s only certification program that defines, measures, and recognizes high-performing, sustainable garages.
