Now is a key moment to work with Strip District land owners to establish public waterfront access along the Allegheny Riverfront from 11th Street to the 31st Street Bridge.

 

Building on the vision for Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Park, which is planned to include 13 miles of continuous waterfront parks and trails, Riverlife engaged Sasaki Associates to envision the future of the Strip District riverfront. The result is this vision plan for Strip District Riverfront Park. These are the possibilities for the future of connecting the Strip neighborhood back to its waterfront.

Establishing New Focal Points

In the Strip District, the landscape design for the riverfront between 11th Street and 27th Street envisions a public park, a new waterfront landing with casual dining options, an expanded marina, and a series of riverfront overlooks and fishing piers to draw residents, workers, and visitors down to the water and provide new waterborne activities.
