3 Crossings Tour with Oxford Development
May 11, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am EDT
Join Green Building Alliance for a tour of multiple green buildings at Oxford Development’s 3 Crossings in the Strip District!
There are some exciting things happening in Pittsburgh’s Strip District lately, and Oxford Development is right in the middle of the action! 3 Crossings is a 20-acre mixed-use development along Smallman and Railroad Streets that aims to bridge the area’s authentic history with renewed opportunities to connect with surrounding neighborhoods and nature. Oxford has incorporated numerous sustainability strategies into the development, and we’ll learn about them on this tour. In addition to achieving LEED Gold Certification for The Yards, Oxford has also incorporated solar arrays, a “living street” component, explored options for geothermal, and more!
We’ll visit some of the properties in 3 Crossings through a short walking tour of 2501 Smallman (LEED Silver anticipated under Core & Shell), 2555 Smallman (LEED Gold anticipated under Core & Shell), the Burns White Center (targeted for LEED Silver under Core & Shell), and The Yards (LEED Gold certified).
We’ll kick the tour off at The Hub garage with some coffee and light breakfast treats as Mike Barnard explains Oxford’s goals for the area, including how the history of the Strip helped inform development. From there, we’ll embark on the walking tour where we’ll learn about the green design components of these buildings first-hand.
As a preview, here are some highlighted elements incorporated into the properties we’ll be visiting:
- Natural Daylighting
- Smart Building Controls
