Southside works Open Hearth garage
560-car precast concrete 7 levels single helix parking garage with 11,000 square feet of retail space at grade.
The Open Hearth Garage has been designed to serve a ground level of the retail program as well as an adjacent residential component of approximately 250 units. The facility is located at the northeast corner of Sidney and South 26th Streets and will be the fifth of the Southside Works garages operated by the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA).
The two-bay wide precast concrete parking structure will contain approximately 560 cars on 7 levels and will incorporate a single helix design with 90-degree parking and two-way traffic. The facility is designed to provide dedicated parking for the ground-level retail area and assigned parking for an adjacent residential project by the same developer. The development contains over 11,000 square feet of retail space on the ground level. The garage will also provide additional capacity to meet the anticipated increased need for public parking as development continues in the Southside Works area. Enclosed parking is also provided for over 115 bicycles including locker units for public access and a room of private racks dedicated to the adjacent residential component.
