Skyline Terrace Revitalization

Pittsburgh, PA

Torti Gallas and Partners designed the neighborhood revitalization of Skyline Terrace, located in Pittsburgh’s Hill District. The existing Skyline Terrace Neighborhood included 726 units on an approximately 40 acre parcel. Torti Gallas provided services including community meetings, site analysis and a three-day community charrette which allowed for the development of a consensus-based neighborhood design. The master plan strengthens vehicular and pedestrian connections to the adjacent Centre Avenue commercial corridor, providing outdoor spaces that capitalize on views to downtown and the Monongahela River, and home designs that blend with the surrounding context to create a diverse, mixed income community. The new Community Center is proximate to the new YMCA and Library on Centre Avenue, forming a nexus for civic, social and recreational activities.
