Pittsburgh restores facades of 11 historic downtown buildings

Five years ago, they were considered among the “dark corners” of downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: deteriorating, old buildings that persisted as pockets of despair, despite the redevelopment taking place near them.

Today, those same buildings dot the Golden Triangle like gems on a jewelry box, stripped of the decades of grime, neglect, and, in some cases, dubious architectural changes that hid their beauty.

Mayor Bill Peduto joined officials from the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation and the Urban Redevelopment Authority to toast the restoration of 11 facades that have turned parts of Wood Street, Forbes and Fifth avenues, and Market Square from dull to dressy.
