Public Realm Action Plan
Envision Downtown and Gehl Studios have spent the last six months creating a Public Realm Action Plan for Downtown Pittsburgh. The plan was created by first assessing how the public realm is currently supporting public life in Downtown Pittsburgh through the Public Space Public Life (PSPL). Detailed survey results can be found here.
Gehl and Envision then presented the PSPL survey results at a series of stakeholder workshops and community outreach forums in order to refine and develop a vision of how the public realm could better serve those who live, work and visit Downtown. The completed Public Realm Action Plan presents a series of strategies and demonstration pilot projects that will help Downtown Pittsburgh unlock the potential of the public realm.
