Lot 1 Parking Facility
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, replaces surface lots to provide for both daily and event parking.
The six-story precast concrete structure features a sculptural array of aluminum fins that shimmer in the sun, reminiscent of the glimmering rivers. Designed to achieve Parksmart’s highest level of Gold, the 330,000 sf garage will be the first in Pennsylvania certified Gold under this USGBC program that promotes sustainable parking garage design.
Features include electric vehicle charging stations, 100% LED lighting, a tire inflation station, bio-swales to reduce rainwater runoff, and a fully equipped secure indoor bicycle parking area for 100 bikes. The structure has been designed to support a potential future solar PV array.
