PITTSBURGH, PA – A pirate-themed entertainment plaza and new six-story apartment building arrives on the North Rim on a vacant plot of land across from PNC Park.
Continental Real Estate Companies, the Columbus developer who has led development between PNC Park and Heinz Field since the demolition of Three Rivers Stadium 20 years ago, will brief the Pittsburgh Planning Commission on the project on Tuesday.
The plaza will be at the intersection of West General Robinson Street and Mazeroski Way; the apartment building will be constructed adjacent to the Plaza and at the corner of Mazeroski Way and North Shore Drive.
The renderings show that the square will be pirate-oriented. An existing garage will be decorated with what appears to be a mural or a sign honoring former Bucs who lost their uniform numbers.
The building will have more than 100 units with indoor and outdoor amenity spaces, as well as retail businesses on the first floor.
The cost of the project was not provided in the presentation documents of the town planning commission.
