Noon - 1:30 p.m. (lunch and program)
Join us on March 12 as we explore opportunities in Pittsburgh's Cultural District, a 14-block area of downtown Pittsburgh that's undergone an amazing transformation in the last 20 years. We'll focus on the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust's upcoming $460 million project, bounded by Fort Duquesne Boulevard overlooking the Allegheny River, Penn Avenue, and Seventh and Ninth streets, which will be the country's first master-planned "green," mixed-use, arts/residential neighborhood, providing approximately 700 new residential units and 9,200 jobs for the region. Other panelists will include developers and others involved in the Cultural District's amazing transformation in the last two decades.
The program begins with networking at 11:30 a.m., includes lunch and finishes with the panel discussion. It will be a great place to meet the primary players making the Cultural District so vibrant, and to meet others interested in business opportunities in this important corridor. These events have consistently sold out, sometimes weeks before the final registration date, so make your reservation early.
