Pittsburgh Penguins set to start residential development of former Civic Arena site, seek low-income tax credit from Commonwealth

The Pittsburgh Penguins and the St. Louis-based development firm McCormack Baron Salazar announced Thursday that they are ready to start development of the former Civic Arena site in the Lower Hill District, the former home of the Penguins.

The NHL team and developer submitted a letter of intent to the Pittsburgh-Allegheny County Sports & Exhibition Authority (SEA) and the city’s Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) to start the first phase of a 1,000-plus unit of residential development at the site that currently stands as a city commuter parking lot.

Pittsburgh City Councilman seeking to develop former Civic Arena site over the Penguins

A Pittsburgh City Council member introduced a piece of legislation Thursday that seeks to skirt around the Pittsburgh Penguins to redevelop the former Civic Arena site in the Lower Hill District, the Penguins previous home. 


Councilman Daniel Lavelle (District 6) is asking the City Solicitor Lourdes Sanchez Ridge to research the city’s legal options for opening the 28-acre site to other developers outside of the Pittsburgh Penguins, the owners of the redevelopment rights to the property.
