Built on a brownfield -- 123 acres of a former LTV Steel site
-- the SouthSide Works is a hip, vibrant mixed-use riverfront development just a mile from downtown Pittsburgh. Upscale shopping and dining, outdoor yoga classes, loft apartments, a sports medicine complex, practice fields, and a riverfront trail that runs through the heart of Pittsburgh are just a few of the amenities offered by the thriving SouthSide Works neighborhood.
Located along the Monongahela River just a mile south and across the river from downtown Pittsburgh, SouthSide Works occupies nine city blocks between East 26th Street and the Hot Metal Bridge.
