The Bakery Square 2.0 streets, bike and pedestrian system, and public
and private courtyards encompass the largest new green infrastructure
project in the City of Pittsburgh. The roadway includes porous paving areas and planted bioretention areas. In a first for the city, public
infrastructure in the streets is being used to manage both public and
private stormwater runoff. The bioretention planters and rain gardens,
in conjunction with underground infiltration beds, are designed to take
in storm water from the roadways, the sidewalks and the roofs of the
surrounding buildings and landscapes. In addition, the comprehensive
system of stormwater management creates a lush visual and environmental amenity that provides shade to reduce the urban heat island
affect, and also slows and screens traffic.
The Master Plan envisioned two 200,000 GSF office buildings, two
175-unit apartment buildings (each 235,840 SF), 45 townhouses, public
and private streets, open spaces, and green infrastructure, spanning
12.5 acres. To date, one office building, two apartment buildings, and
green infrastructure have been designed and constructed. ■
