Three Rivers, A Catalyst Development for the Future of Multi-Modal Urban Living in Pittsburgh, PA

Gijoon Paris Sim Three Rivers is an unprecedented mixed-use development in the North Shore neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. As the entertainment district of the city, North Shore is home to the Steelers’ football stadium (Heinz Field) and Pirates’ baseball stadium (PNC Park) as well as Carnegie Science Museum and Andy Warhol Museum, all accessible by the metro station on site. As the catalyst development for the future of North Shore as a thriving, unique and multi-modal community, Three Rivers will be an example of new urban project focusing on Transit Oriented Development and prioritizing alternative modes of transportation over personal vehicles.

The new public plaza at the corner of the site provides abundance of green features and safe intersection, while directly connecting Three Rivers to the PNC Park. This first public space for North Shore will layout the new infrastructure to accommodate future mobility and provide adequate spaces for bikes, micro-mobility and drop-off/pick-up zones.

The development also sits a block from Pittsburgh’s riverfront heritage trails and provides beautiful skyline view of downtown Pittsburgh from upper-level residential units.
