Pittsburgh committee presents a plan for a plan for some of the city's rundown facilities

A committee reviewing Pittsburgh-owned facilities has recommended the sale, renovation, relocation, demolition, or merger of thirty-one of the cities buildings.

The recommended list includes fire, paramedic, and police stations, as well as recreation and senior centers that have deteriorated or are no longer practical to maintain. The recommendations were based on a report completed by Massaro Construction Management Services earlier this year.

Pittsburgh City Council receives update on plan to fix city's facilities and assets

Members of the Mayor Peduto’s administration came before Pittsburgh City Council on Tuesday during a Post Agenda meeting to lay out the status of the Facilities Optimization Plan. 

The 40-year facilities optimization plan is the result of an ongoing, comprehensive facility management study of Pittsburgh, done by Massaro Corp., that evaluates the city’s approximate 300 structures that total more than 2.1 million square feet of building space. 

The study came after an executive order made by Mayor Peduto last June to enact a long-term, strategic investment and maintenance plan for city owned facilities, as part of the Pittsburgh’s comphrensive fixed asset management system.
