Hazelwood Green

At 178 acres, Hazelwood Green is the largest brownfield redevelopment site in the City of Pittsburgh’s history. Situated along the Monongahela River, the home of a former steel mill is evolving into a high-performing mixed-use neighborhood. Hazelwood Green seeks to be a low carbon development with aggressive energy, water, waste, and transportation goals, compliant with 2030 and P4 targets, and is to be certified under LEED for Neighborhood Development.

evolveEA is involved in multiple sustainability initiatives in the redevelopment of Hazelwood Green, namely:

A catalyst project for Hazelwood Green development, this historic building is targeting LEED v4 Gold for New Construction. As the sustainability consultant, evolveEA is working with the project team to implement energy and water savings,  progressive waste management practices, recycled content, and locally produced materials.
