Development Activities Meetings
OBID is a Registered Community Organization (RCO) with the City of Pittsburgh Department of City Planning. The RCO designation provides OBID a formal role in the current development projects and neighborhood planning processes. Please use this platform to learn about current Development Activities Meetings (DAM), provide feedback on proposed developments and plans for Oakland projects requiring a public hearing and meet a development threshold.
The Next Development Activities meeting in Oakland is on Monday, July 11th at 5:30PM via Zoom.
Walnut Capital and Strada will be presenting to the Oakland community their plan for Parcel “A” of Oakland Crossings. The proposed 2.66-acre development, located at 3401 Boulevard of the Allies, seeks to construct a multistory mixed-use building on the former Quality Inn site. Located at the intersection of Boulevard of the Allies, Halket Street, Zulema Street, and Coltart Avenue in Central Oakland, the proposed development calls for a grocery store, 426 apartment units, an integrated 438-space parking garage, and ground-floor retail uses (including a 33,000-square-foot grocery store and 8,000 square feet of additional retail space). The project will require review and approval by the City of Pittsburgh Planning Commission.
