BPG & The Pittsburgh Penguins announce Live Nation Entertainment Venue

PITTSBURGH, PA — Live Nation Entertainment, Inc., One of the world-wide leaders in live music promotion and venue operation, will anchor a 90,000 s/f live entertainment venue on the former Civic Arena development site in the Lower Hill. The announcement was made by the Pittsburgh Penguins, together with its development partner The Buccini/Pollin Group (BPG), the master commercial real estate developer for the 28-acre site of the former Civic Arena.The new live music venue will be constructed above an underground 850-space public parking garage at the intersection of Wylie Ave. and Logan St., at the center of the Penguins’ Lower Hill redevelopment site. The venue’s design will be a “three-in-one” concept, including an enclosed highly-amenitized seating area for club and theater performances as well as an adjacent outdoor amphitheater lawn. Filling the gap for mid-sized live music venues in the Pittsburgh area, the unique design accommodates intimate live music events as well as medium to larger performances, up to a 6,600 maximum total capacity. In addition, the Live Nation project is expected to help catalyze investments into the middle and upper Hill District, including the Ammon Community Recreation Center, August Wilson Boyhood Home, New Granada Theatre, and programming at Miller Elementary and University Prep public schools.
