Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation (PHLF) invites you to take a Live Virtual Architecture Tour of Grant Street! This tour covers the northern half of a street that the American Planning Association designated one of America’s Ten Great Streets in 2012. From the quintessentially Modernist U.S. Steel Tower to the elegant Beaux-Arts Pennsylvanian (formerly Union Station), and with glorious Art Deco gems in between, this part of Grant Street is populated by outstanding civic and corporate buildings. Examples of adaptive re-use of historic buildings in this corridor demonstrate the economic value of historic preservation. Tour participants will learn of the wide influence – sometimes explicit, other times less so – of businessman, philanthropist, politician, art collector, and Pittsburgh native, Andrew W. Mellon, on this important street.
The Live Virtual Architecture Tour: Grant Street will be held via Zoom on Thursday, April 15 from 2:00 to 3:30 pm.
