Live Virtual Architecture Tour: Grant Street

Apr 15, 2021 - Apr 15, 2021 | 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Virtual Event by Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation

This tour covers the northern half of a street that the American Planning Association designated one of America’s Ten Great Streets in 2012. From the quintessentially Modernist U.S. Steel Tower to the elegant Beaux-Arts Pennsylvanian (formerly Union Station), and with glorious Art Deco gems in between, this part of Grant Street is populated by outstanding civic and corporate buildings. Examples of adaptive re-use of historic buildings in this corridor demonstrate the economic value of historic preservation. Tour participants also will learn of the wide influence—sometimes explicit, other times less so—of businessman, philanthropist, politician, art collector, and Pittsburgh native Andrew W. Mellon on this important street.
