Hazelwood Local Public Art Initiatives | Pittsburgh, PA

Street Plans is nearly complete with its third consecutive year of directing the Hazelwood Local initiative on behalf of the Almono LP and Tishman Speyer, developers of the brownfield redevelopment Hazelwood Green in Pittsburgh, PA. Hazelwood Local is an umbrella initiative that brings creative experiences to Hazelwood, programs and markets various spaces within the development, and drives patronage and attention to neighborhood businesses and organizations through its various online platforms and in-person programming.

In addition to having executed over 60 community events at Hazelwood Green and along the neighborhood’s Second Avenue corridor since 2021, Street Plans has managed a yearly public art project. This year’s project, called Crossing Beacon, activates a historic building at the entrance to Hazelwood Green, and former entrance to the J&L Steel mill. It is being installed on the heels of another community art project completed in September. 

Previously, Street Plans worked with three local artists to activate vacant storefronts along Second Avenue with illuminated artworks, a series of installations called Illumin-Ave. Last year, Street Plans worked with the community to paint Hazelwood Alive, an artistic materials storage container that reinforces the identity of Hazelwood Green Plaza.
