District Innovation — Two Big Initiatives
#1. EcoInnovation in the Uptown/West Oakland Corridor
“The result is a bold vision for the future where everyone is invited to come, to innovate, to build new businesses and to find a livable community to call home. The lessons we learn here, in Uptown, will shape the next generation of neighborhood plans across the city.” – City of Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto
The EcoInnovation District is the first of its kind in Pittsburgh. Focused on the Uptown and West Oakland communities, it is a groundbreaking initiative that combines the goals of both Eco Districts (dedicated to building a resilient and equitable city) and Innovation Districts (focused on spurring job growth by creating places where people can share ideas and establish new and innovative businesses.) that have helped to positively transform communities across the country.
