South Shore Riverfront Park celebrates opening, party this Thursday

When the Southside Works was first envisioned in 1996, a master plan called for a portion of the riverfront to be transformed from latent industrial uses into a vibrant public park.  Tomorrow, the URA and its partners will celebrate the opening of the South Shore Riverfront Park, marking not only the park’s completion, but a final piece in the overall redevelopment of this former brownfield site.

This new public space, at 27th and Water Streets, is located on the south bank of the Monongahela River, between the Hot Metal Bridge and the existing Southside Riverfront Park, and is adjacent to the Southside Works.

Although the current phase is complete, the final portion of the park will include a public boat tie-up, with spaces for 17 boats, a dock where water taxis could potentially pick-up and drop-off passengers, and an entire boat marina.  Phase II of the park is expected to be completed next year.

During the development and excavation of the site, several steel ingots were uncovered.  Those industrial relics are now displayed in the park, a memorial to the men and women who dedicated their lives to working in the mills.

Other artifacts in the park include the Morgan Mill Gate, the pump house for the Jones & Laughlin’s No. 2 Open Hearth Shop, and a slag pot, taken from the Nine Mile Run area.

The park includes upper and lower trails, a large amphitheater, and a kiosk, which will be used as an information center.  From the kiosk, visitors can learn about the park’s history and artifacts.  Plans call for using the kiosk to sell gelato and coffee in the near future.

Construction of the park began in the summer of 2008, with total project costs at $13 million.

Thursday’s kickoff event, titled Rhythm n’ Flow, will be hosted by Cindy Howe of WYEP’s Morning Mix.  The event will begin at 6 p.m., with two live bands, White Wives and Delicious Pastries.  In addition to music, the Citiparks Roving Art Cart will offer activities for kids, and Bike Pittsburgh will offer a free bike valet.

Enchanted Garden plant shop and garden art boutique opening in South Side

With each planting season, independently owned garden centers are making it easier to prepare gardens for spring without ever leaving the city.  And now, in addition to established growers like the Urban Gardener and Wilkinsburg's Garden Dreams, the Enchanted Garden, which opens Friday on the South Side, is the latest plant purveyor to assist in the greening of Pittsburgh.

Located within a five-room storefront one block from East Carson Street, the Enchanted Garden features annual and perennial flowers, vegetables, fruits, and herbs, as well as succulents and bonsai trees.  The store will be selling high-quality garden tools that are ergonomically designed, or feature lifetime warranties.

Co-owner Jackie Day says her shop is focused on organic growing practices, and offers a wide range of all-natural products for the garden and the body.

In addition to garden supplies, the shop is selling locally-made honey and bee pollen, used to treat seasonal allergies, as well as artisan soaps and body creams, all-natural bug sprays, and beeswax candles.

And the center is also a garden-art boutique, featuring the work of local artists in pottery, wind chimes, stain glass, jewelry, and more.  

Day says Enchanted Garden is ideal for those planning to garden in an urban setting, offering brackets and baskets for vertical growing, and a variety of container-growing options.

"A lot of the items that we're going to sell are tailored toward people that have smaller spaces to work with," she says.

The shop is also doing vermiculture composting on-site, and will be teaching customers how to compost with worms at home, with bins and worms for sale.  

“It’s the most nutrient rich plant fertilizer that you can get, but it’s completely natural,” Day says.

For those not quite ready for the at-home system, Enchanted Garden is offering two and five pound bags of worm castings for sale.

The Enchanted Garden opens Friday, May 4th, 73 13th Street, 412-235-7680.

Industry Public House, Lawrenceville's newest restaurant and bar, now open

Craft beer, quality whiskey, and American comfort food are the offerings of Lawrenceville’s newest bar and restaurant, Industry Public House

The restaurant takes its name from the neighborhood’s industrial legacy, and has developed a décor to match.  The interior features exposed brick, machinery throughout, Edison bulbs, and tables made of steel I-beams and butcher-block tops.  Located in a former retail space on Butler Street, Industry's large interior seats up to 100.

Manager Adrian Van Balen says Industry’s menu gives a gourmet twist to classic comfort food.  Starters include a black stout onion soup; pork, lobster, and pot roast sliders; a variety of flat-breads; and wild boar bacon.  Other offerings include salads and sandwiches, as well as a 12 oz ribeye, lobster mac and cheese, and pan seared salmon.

And like other gastropubs, Industry puts a lot of energy into creating a unique menu of burgers, like the Farm House, with shaved honey glazed ham and a fried egg; the Worker Burgher, with red onion marmalade, caramelized wild mushrooms, and mozzarella cheese; and the Caribbean Burgher, a blend of fresh pork, chorizo sausage, with a jerk a BBQ baste and sweet pineapple calypso mojo.

Industry’s owners also operate Elixir Ultra Lounge, and 1311, a sports bar, both on the South Side.  Executive Chef Wade Chambers joins the restaurant after his most recent position at The Porch at Schenley, in Oakland.

The bar has 40 craft beers on tap, 60 in bottle, and just as many varieties of whiskey.  The Industry Public House IPA and Industry Copper Ale are brewed exclusively for the restaurant by Full Pint Brewing Company, of North Versailles, PA. 

Van Balen says he hopes Industry will stand out for its unique, hand-crafted cocktails, including the popular Smoke Stack, which infuses wood smoke in whiskey, along with a list of other industrial-themed drinks like the Blast Furnace, Tesla’s Coil, and Robber Barron.

Industry Public House is located at 4305 Butler Street, in Lawrenceville, and open Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.

Fineview incline gateway project moves up the hill

Although the city has only two remaining inclines, the Fineview Citizens Council is in the process of preserving and celebrating what remains of that neighborhood’s former funicular.  But the neighborhood group won’t be restoring transit service up the hill.  Instead, they plan to use the remains of the Nunnery Hill Incline’s retaining wall and base station as a well-marked gateway to the hilltop community.   

The Henderson Street Gateway Project will work to preserve the incline’s remnants, improve the entry point into Fineview, and create a unified streetscape, as well as provide improvements to the historic iron fencing on the street’s south side.

Ed Lewis, program manager of the FCC, says the council wanted to have a consistent plan and strategy for improving the entire street.

“This is the first impression people get of [Fineview], and it will be more a welcoming and inviting entryway into the neighborhood,” Lewis says.

Henderson Street intersects the Central Northside at the $15 million Federal Hill housing development, a project which is adding 60 new townhomes to the neighborhood.  Lewis says his organization is hoping to built on the momentum of the Federal/North corridor, which is now redeveloping after many years of planning.

Last year, the incline plane was designated a city historic site.   The Nunnery Hill Incline was one of only a few that meandered up a hillside with a curving route, rather than shooting straight up

The design work is being led by Klavon Design Associates, and the project scope will start at the intersection of Federal Street and Henderson Street, and run approximately 2,000 feet, ascending the hill into the neighborhood.

A portion of the study’s funds were provided by the Community Design Center of Pittsburgh, as well as the Rivers Casino partnership with the Northside Leadership Conference, and a community development block grant from City Council members Darlene Harris and Daniel Lavelle.

Use art to build urban connections on the North Side? One-day charette for 18 to 25 year olds

How can neighborhoods use art to build urban connections?  That's the question being asked this Saturday by the Northside’s cultural institutions.  But rather than hiring a distinguished design firm, they're turning the question to the young, creative people of Pittsburgh. 

Beginning with a one-day charrette led by the Community Design Center of Pittsburgh, the challenge will be to design connections—whether literal or metaphorical—between the various points-of-interests throughout the Northside, from the Andy Warhol Museum and the National Aviary, to the New Hazlett Theater and the Mattress Factory.  The event is open to all Pittsburgh residents ages 18 to 25.

That these cultural institutions are sometimes disjointed is a problem that the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh has previously identified.  Their ongoing Charm Bracelet Project has similarly sought to link the district’s cultural and recreational destinations through public art and other unifying efforts.

The current effort, Art and Urban Connectivity, is open to all ideas, and could take on any form, says Thor Erickson, of the CDC.

"We're looking for the creative folks that are the young adults in Pittsburgh to come up with something that's outside of the box and maybe hasn't been thought of before," Erickson says.

Following the charrette, participants will be asked to create a design board detailing their ideas, to be submitted for a juried competition.  The work of 13 finalists will be displayed at the Warhol on June 29th, with cash prizes for various categories of excellence. 

Saturday’s event will run from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, meeting at the New Hazlett Theater, and moving to the Children’s Museum.  Erickson says the traveling charrette will give participants a taste of the Northside’s cultural offerings.

"There's a lot of little things going on in Northside," Erickson says, "And as you look at them together, it's a pretty compelling piece that if there was a way to easily identify paths to get to each of them, it could create a really unique experience."

Homewood Indoor Bike Park plans moving forward

Harry Geyer wants to bring Pittsburgh’s cycling culture to its next logical step: indoors.  Already in the preliminary stages of development, Geyer is planning an 80,000 square-foot indoor cycling facility called The Wheel Mill.  It would be the first of its kind in Pennsylvania, and one of only a few in the nation.

The facility, located at 6815 Hamilton Avenue, would include year-round, indoor courses for mountain biking and BMX, a bike polo court, and possibly space for a mini-velodrome.

According to Geyer, the first indoor bicycle park of a similar scale was built in Cleveland in 2004.  Geyer says like many other bicycle enthusiasts who had visited Ray’s Indoor Mountain Bike Park, he came back to Pittsburgh eager to bring a similar concept to his own city.

“It’s addictive [and] fun, and I think we all just wanted it,” Geyer says.  And finally, after several years of planning, “all the elements just came together.”

Geyer says the Homewood community has been tremendously supportive of the idea.  And as community groups in the neighborhood are currently working to create safe biking routes for kids to schools, and encouraging more youth-bike programs, he sees the bike park in Homewood as a good fit. 

Geyer also runs a reclaimed lumber business, and plans to build as much of the bike park’s infrastructure from reclaimed wood and other recycled materials as possible. 

A resident’s meeting was held last night at the bike park to address comments and concerns about the proposed facility.  Geyer plans to release specific details about the park in the coming months, and anticipates opening later this fall.

Thelma Lovette YMCA now open in the Hill District

The Thelma Lovette YMCA is now open in the Hill District.  And much like the building's namesake, 96 year-old civil rights leader and activist Thelma Lovette, has done for the neighborhood throughout her life, community leaders hope it will be a catalyst for further redevelopment of the Centre Avenue corridor.

Carl Redwood, Executive director of the Hill District Consensus Group, says the new state-of-the-art facility is a positive addition to the community as it grows and moves forward.

"The YMCA is a great asset for our neighborhood [and] definitely a step in the positive direction," he says. 

The 43,000 square-foot facility includes a swimming pool, a wellness center with new cardio equipment and Keiser bikes, a gymnasium, an indoor running track, and a rooftop terrace overlooking the city.  Additionally, much of the exercise equipment is uniquely handicap accessible. 

Construction of the structure began just last August, at a cost of $12 million.  The Y offers many programs and services, including child watch services for members with children.

And there’s several more developments coming to the neighborhood on the heels of the Y’s opening, including new homes on Dinwillde and Addison Streets, and a future Shop ‘n Save grocery store, also to be located on Centre Avenue.

Although the new facility has just opened, Redwood notes that the YMCA has been a part of the Hill District community for over 100 years. The Centre Avenue YMCA (2621 Centre Avenue), built in 1922 and declared a Historic Landmark in 1994, has been able to expand its existing housing services, as well as continued health and food programs, youth development, and career and workforce development.

The new Thelma Lovette Y will begin its first Summer Day Camp on June 18th and will continue through August 17th, Monday through Friday.

Franklin West converts Ronald McDonald Houses to apartments in Shadyside

The Franklin West property group has recently completed the restoration and renovation of two Queen Ann Victorian homes in Shadyside, now offering a total of 21 apartment units.  This project brings their work in the neighborhood full-circle, as the homes are located across Shady Avenue from the company's first-ever renovations, completed nearly 50 years ago.

Caroline West says her family-owned company has prided itself on home-to-apartment conversions in Shadyside that blend with existing, historic buildings and single-family homes.

“In converting [these buildings] to apartments we tried to respect all the original historic characteristics, such as the tall windows, the tall doors, the high ceilings,” West says.  “Both buildings have been completely modernized, yet it still from the outside looks like exactly what it is--a gracious, old Victorian.”

Both homes, built circa 1880, are former Ronald McDonald Houses, and had offered residences there from 1970 until 2008, when Franklin West purchased both buildings.  The foundation was able to continue operating from Shady Avenue until its new location, within the Lawrenceville Children’s Hospital, was completed.

Architect Kevin Wagstaff of Perfido, Weiskopf, Wagstaff, and Goettel, designed the renovations of both buildings, 500 and 512 Shady Avenue.  A mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments, with rents ranging from $1300 to $1890, each unit features high-efficiency appliances, washer/dryer, and central heat and air conditioning.

Of the company’s properties, which total near 1,000 units in the greater Pittsburgh area, West says the work on Shady Avenue is exemplary of Franklin West’s commitment to maintaining historic properties.

“It’s an example where through creative reuse we are able to preserve the charm and character of the neighborhood--why people want to come and live in Shadyside,” she says.  “We have really focused on maintaining buildings…[that] still have viable use and a desire in the neighborhood.”

Bus rapid transit plans advancing, public review sessions next week

The Port Authority of Allegheny County is taking the next step in its exploration of bus rapid transit (BRT).  Next week, a series of three community input meetings are being held throughout the city to provide the public with opportunities to review and comment on potential alternate alignments for the proposed system.

Last summer, the Port Authority began a $1 million study of BRT between Downtown, Oakland, and East End neighborhoods.  Although the study is still in progress, the purpose of next week’s meetings is to share with the public what BRT could potentially look like in those neighborhoods, including routing, changes to traffic lanes, and the possibility of added bicycle lanes.

This current study of BRT is using a “complete streets” approach, according to Heather Pharo, of the Port Authority.  This means access for all users-- including transit, bicyclists, pedestrians, and general auto traffic—is being taken into account.

The study is being conducted by Parsons Brinckerhoff, and includes an environmental assessment, route alternatives, and general economic impact on communities in the corridor. 

BRT is a form of bus transit that operates similar to a traditional street-rail system, with dedicated stations, route priority, and platform fare collection, among other efficiency measures. 

Get There PGH, a partnership of over 30 neighborhood organizations, has been leading the effort to advance BRT in Pittsburgh, of which the Port Authority is stakeholder.
 

Meetings will be held at the following locations and times:

Hill District: Tuesday, April 24, 2012, 6:00 to 8:00 pm, Hill House Kaufman Center Auditorium, 1825 Centre Avenue

Oakland: Wednesday, April 25, 2012, 6:00 to 8:00 pm, Carnegie Mellon University, University Student Center, Rangos Ballroom 3, 5032 Forbes Avenue

East End: Thursday, April 26, 2012, 6:00 to 8:00 pm, East Liberty Presbyterian Church Social Hall, 116 South Highland Avenue

Uptown: Tuesday, May 8, 2012, 6:00 to 8:00 pm, UPMC Mercy Hospital, 1400 Locust Street, Sr. Ferdinand Clark Auditorium, 2nd. Fl., Bldg. D.  Free Parking in Mercy Garage. Ticket will be validated.

Wilkinsburg housing partnership to provide over 20 home renovations, assistance

A new coalition of nonprofits has formed the Wilkinsburg Affordable Housing Coalition to provide renovation assistance to targeted homeowners in the Princeton Park and Park Triangle areas of the borough. 

The coalition is facilitated by the Wilkinsburg Community Development Corporation (WCDC), and brings together three other nonprofits that have previous experience in the community: Rebuilding Together Pittsburgh (RTP), Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh (HFHGP) and Wilkinsburg Christian Housing.

 “We’re trying to work in a holistic way with a number of organizations in the targeted areas,” says Tracey Evans, WCDC executive director.  By collaborating, the groups will be able to better aid residents by streamlining the assistance process, and by utilizing each other’s various strengths and focus areas.

One goal of the partnership is to provide assistance to homeowners who have are in violation of building codes and who have no other options for assistance. 

Renovations to begin this year are funded by a $20,000 grant to HFHGP provided by Peoples Natural Gas, with additional funding available through a matching grant opportunity.  Along with the Coalition’s existing financial resources and staff, these funds will provide renovations for at least 20 homeowners this summer.

The program will provide assistance on weatherization, ramps and porches, carpentry and painting.  Evans says recipients will be homeowners who fit certain income and other criteria. 

The work will begin with a kickoff event on April 28, with renovations continuing through the summer.  The Coalition plans to continue raising funds for the effort, and hopes to continue the partnership for the next several years.

Larimer's EECO Center aims to be hub for energy-efficiency and conservation, opening soon

Construction of the Environment and Energy Community Outreach (EECO) Center has finished, and the project’s supporters hope it will soon be offering East End residents a new way to go green and save money. 

When it opens in June, the center’s goal is to help low-income residents in the East End make their homes more energy-efficient through education and resources, to promote household water conservation, and to raise awareness about utility assistance programs.

And the facility itself will be a living demonstration of all the green technologies it advocates, such as rainwater harvesting, LED lighting, low-water use plumbing fixtures, geothermal walls, solar panels, urban gardens, and more. 

The current EECO Center project grew from State Senator Jim Ferlo’s vision for a vacant lot in Larimer that had been the site of a BP gas station.  In 2009 the site was donated to the Urban Redevelopment Authority, and after several years of revisions and collaborations, the project’s building is complete.

Senator Ferlo says he hopes the ECCO Center will be a cornerstone for the ongoing efforts to redevelop Larimer on the principles of sustainability, and a greener neighborhood environment. 

Pittsburgh Community Services, Inc. (PCSI) is currently using the building for its neighborhood safety programs, as well workforce development, and nutritional assistance programs, among others.  After the grand opening, PCSI will continue to staff and manage the facility, directed by a programming advisory board.

In the coming weeks, the site is set for perimeter tree plantings by Tree Pittsburgh, an adjacent storm water management installation, and sustainable landscaping, all of which will work toward the vision for the EECO Center as a hub of all things green.

Thai Cuisine celebrates grand re-opening, expansion in Bloomfield

Fans of Bloomfield’s Thai Cuisine can once again enjoy that restaurant’s signature curry and noodle dishes, as it recently celebrated a grand re-opening on Liberty Avenue.  The restaurant has operated in the same location since 2001, but had closed for major renovations last year after its owners purchased one of two storefronts it then occupied.

Now located exclusively within the 4627 Liberty Avenue storefront, Thai Cuisine seats up to 75 guests, and has gained additional square-footage with additions to the building’s rear.  Renovations include an expanded, industrial kitchen, raised ceilings, tile floors, and three new windows along Pearl Street. 

Co-owner Lisa Jirachertchoowong says the restaurant had hoped to re-open much sooner, but that it was well worth the wait, as everyone, especially the kitchen staff, is very happy with the new look and added space.

In addition to classic Thai curries and Pad Thai, Jirachertchoowong says her restaurant features a variety of weekly specials, such as a recent spicy duck entrée, and a spicy, crispy trout, topped with Thai chilies, cashews, cilantro, and lime juice, over a bed of lettuce.

While the restaurant was closed, Jirachertchoowong and brother Chai lent a helping hand to their sister June, while she was busy opening the South Hill’s first Thai restaurant, Thai Spoon.

Jirachertchoowong, who lives just a few blocks away, says she has felt very much at home in Bloomfield since day one.  With the purchase and renovation of their Liberty Avenue storefront, Jirachertchoowong says her family hopes to be in the neighborhood for a long time to come. 

Thai Cuisine is open for lunch and dinner, Tuesday through Sunday, and takes reservations for parties of 5 or more.  The restaurant is BYOB, and charges only $1 per wine glass, with no charges for beer.

East Deutschtown's first commercial development in decades breaks ground, future dialysis clinic

East Deutschtown’s first commercial development in nearly 40 years has broken ground on what will be a future DaVita dialysis clinic.  Neighborhood groups hope it will be the beginning of renewed and continued investment in this centrally located, Northside community.

The 9,000-square-foot building will be situated just east of Interstate 279 along Madison Avenue and Tripoli Street.  Although the new structure will be just a single floor, a second-story gable was added to the design in order to blend the structure with the surrounding 19th century two- and three-story homes and businesses.

As the site is located near a major traffic corridor, and will be a highly visible landmark, the Community Alliance of Spring Garden and East Deutschtown (also known as East Allegheny) felt that it was especially important that the building’s design reflect the historic character of the neighborhood. 

Community board member Neil Poillon says the completed building will have a look and design that Pittsburgh will be proud of.  He says developer Marc Anthony Construction has worked closely with neighborhood stakeholders, and with the community’s input in the design process.

“We all gave a little and I think we came up with something that was good for the neighborhood and works for the developer,” Poillon says.

In addition to the new dialysis clinic, three historic townhomes in the adjacent block have recently been renovated and are for sale. 

Poillon says the neighborhood is filled with good people and cultural institutions, is favorably situated within the city, and believes it’s only a matter of time before even more vacant lots are transformed into positive community assets.

The Pittsburgh Tour Company adds more hop on-hop offbuses, expands routes for fourth season

The Pittsburgh Tour Company’s fourth season in the city is underway, and they’ve added a few more bright red, double-deckers to their fleet of historic London buses.  Along with the additional vehicles, the company has expanded its route to new parts of the city, and now features 21 stops.

The tour route begins in the South Side, and makes its way to the North Shore, the Strip District, and Oakland. 

Owner Vinny Lamonica says his company’s “hop on/hop off” service is one of several features that makes these tours unique in Pittsburgh.  While on a guided tour, guests are able to exit the bus at any of the featured stops.  After they have explored an area, they can then join any later bus, which arrive approximately once an hour.

And guests don’t need to commute to the company’s headquarters to join the tour.  Instead, they can begin the tour by hopping on a bus at any stop, which Lamonica says eliminates a lot of confusion for out-of-town tourists.

“A lot of people come into town and they don’t really know what to do, or how to get there,” he says.  “So you can leave your car at the hotel and let us do the rest for you.”

Becky Rodgers, Executive Director of Neighbors in the Strip, says the expansion of this tour service is a good thing for Strip District and for Pittsburgh.

“What a wonderful way to see the entire city,” Rodgers says.  “It’s just an easy thing for tourists to do—and it’s memorable.”

Pittsburgh Tour Company operated 7 days a week, April through December.  For more information call 412-381-TOUR.

Sienna Sulla Piazza opens in Market Square

Sienna Sulla Piazza, an upscale-casual Italian restaurant and wine bar, opened last week in Market Square, replacing the former Bella Serra Urban Trattoria.  The previous restaurant was sold to its news owners in February, and the name change reflects the transition to Chef Matt Porco's new menu and aesthetic.

The new menu is built on smaller, less-expensive plates intended for multi-course dining.  Antipastos include mozzarella stuffed veal meatballs and chicken liver mousse; pastas such as parsnip ravioli with short ribs, house-made gnocchi with braised pork ragu, and wild mushroom risotto; and meat and seafood dishes include braised lamb osso bucco, chicken marsala with mascarpone polenta, and prosciutto wrapped Atlantic salmon.

Chef Porco's previous restaurant, Mio Kitchen & Wine Bar, garnered many accolades, including a 2010 Chef of the Year award from Pittsburgh Magazine.  Poroco says this new endeavor is a home-coming of sorts, as some of his earliest cooking experiences were in Market Square, where is family owned bars and restaurants in the '70s and '80s.

Yet while the menu and name have changed, fans of the former restaurant's intimate setting will find the familiar rustic-chic decor, which features plenty of exposed brick, dark woods, and intimate lighting.

And like its predecessor, Sienna is certified by the Green Restaurant Association,  which means it maintains environmental standards in seven categories, including water efficiency, waste reduction, and recycling, sustainable furnishings, and sustainable food and energy.

Sienna will continue to offer seasonal outdoor dining on the square, and is open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner.  For more information and reservations, call 412-281-6363.
