Uptown EcoInnovation District Plan -- City of Pittsburgh, Department of City Planning

 

PROJECT: 

The EcoInnovation District Planning Project in Pittsburgh is the first of its kind.  It is a groundbreaking initiative that combines the goals of both EcoDistricts (focused on smart and efficient infrastructure and green building practices) and Innovation Districts (focused on job growth and economic opportunity).  The EcoInnovation District Plan is an opportunity to identify the ways in which redevelopment can improve the environment, support the needs of existing residents and expand entrepreneurship and job growth. The plan is focused on the Uptown and West Oakland communities which are noted for empty buildings and vacant land as well as access, infrastructure, stormwater runoff and localized air quality problems. Focusing on these areas will better connect the city centers of Downtown and Oakland. 

SERVICES:

Sci-Tek is providing planning and engineering services as a subconsultant to Interface Studio, LLC.  As part of the planning, Sci-Tek has been involved in gathering data from public forums and existing EcoInnovation districts to help develop a project plan. Our engineers have also surveyed the area to generate a profile of land, facility, infrastructure, and industrial assets. This data is being used to develop an access and parking strategy as well as identify targets for urban design strategies, including redevelopment, management, transportation, and green infrastructure. Sci-Tek provided civil engineering to develop the final EcoInnovation District Plan and assisted in developing an implementation strategy which was submitted to the City of Pittsburgh. In the future, we will be providing civil engineering services for representative public open space and green infrastructure sites identified in the plan including a topographic survey, preliminary engineering drawings, and technical specifications.
