The re-development of abandoned industrial or manufacturing sites has proven to be a crucial factor in the rehabilitation and revitalization of cities and towns across the country. Larson Design Group (LDG) has been proud to be a part of such projects, not only as a matter of our everyday client-focused work, but to enrich the communities in which we operate.
With work being done out of our Pittsburgh office, LDG contributed to the development of Hazelwood Green, a brownfield redevelopment site of the former LTV Coke Works along the Monongahela River southeast of downtown Pittsburgh. The site expects to include a mixed-income residential neighborhood with light manufacturing and tech-centric jobs, as well as jogging trails and other amenities on the 178-acre riverfront tract. The Lytle Street project includes a full utility package, roadway construction and an elaborate bike lane, sidewalk and landscaping package.
LDG provided street design and construction management and inspection services for the construction of Lytle Street and the associated infrastructure for the Hazelwood Green development in the Hazelwood section of Pittsburgh. Among the many services provided by LDG were utility coordination, construction inspection, contractor payment recommendations, as-built drawings, and change order management. The lead designer for the project is KU Resources, and the contractor is Mele & Mele & Sons, Inc.
Being a part of the revitalization of the last, and largest, brownfield site within the city of Pittsburgh speaks to LDG’s core values of innovation and stewardship. Construction of Lytle Street began in July 2018 and was substantially complete in the Fall of 2019. Check out the drone footage above for a closer look at the project!
