Spring Donor Event at Nova Place

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

By invitation only

Nova Place on the Northside


Shimmering in Alcoa aluminum, Allegheny Center Shopping Mall was billed as Pittsburgh’s “only in-town regional shopping center” at its opening Sept. 12, 1966. The mall was the keystone of Allegheny Center, a bold, mixed-use development that would “revive [the North Side’s] elegant spirit.”

The Center thrived for more than 20 years until new housing and retail developments in the North Hills supplied consumers with new options. After a five-year renovation, the Center reopened in 2017 as Nova Place and aimed to fulfill another wish of the original developers: to become “a new city” within the city. Mayor Bill Peduto said upon the new plan’s unveiling in 2015: “We’re here with a new vision, a vision of how we can take this failed model of trying to keep up with the suburbs and to create around it a new urban fabric.”

We invite our current fund holders to see what’s new on the North Side beginning with a guided tour of Nova Place – "Pittsburgh’s Innovation Space."
