“If you’re Italian and from western Pennsylvania, this building connects to you directly,” Peduto said Tuesday. “It’s going to see another 100 years. We’re going to give her a brand new use and this building will be the lifeblood of the regeneration and rejuvenation of all along the Allegheny River from the Strip into Lawrenceville and all the way into Downtown.” Peduto was among dozens of public officials and dignitaries on hand for a ceremonial groundbreaking of the historic terminal building that once provided fresh produce throughout this end of the state. Chicago-based McCaffery...

For decades, Pittsburghers had known the property in the 1600 to 2100 blocks of Smallman Street as a produce terminal but now the Strip District Terminal and the former warehouse known as 1600 Smallman have marked a new beginning with a groundbreaking Tuesday that is looking to the Strip District's future.

A full rehabilitation of Pittsburgh’s Produce Terminal is expected to be completed in August of 2020. City and county officials gathered in the Strip District on Tuesday to celebrate the building’s future. Small cocktail tables dotted the now-empty terminal, separated from construction vehicles and debris by a temporary stage. A three-piece band warmed up as waiters circulated with glasses of water. Standing just inside one of the old unloading docks, Mayor Bill Peduto said restoring the building is the linchpin to continued growth of the Strip.

The developer on Tuesday joined a host of dignitaries and stakeholders for the official groundbreaking of the terminal rehab and a companion office and retail project at 1600 Smallman across the street. Together, the redevelopments are expected to total $100 million. Construction on both started earlier this year. But Tuesday was reserved as the day to officially extol the potential virtues of the terminal redevelopment and to fret about the challenges.

Work is already underway on renovating the 1600-foot-long, 157,237-square-foot Pennsylvania Railroad Fruit Auction & Sales Building into what’s to become the Strip District Terminal that’s expected to largely be a hub for retailers, restaurants and a collection of small merchants and businesses. Across a Smallman Street being reconfigured to be more pedestrian friendly, McCaffery Interests and its development team also are working to renovate 1600 Smallman into an upgraded office address totaling a little more than 120,000 square feet.

This is a classic short term pain for long term gain. Mayor Bill Peduto says the transformation of the old Produce Terminal is inspiring. “We’re not tearing it down. We’re going to polish her up. We’re going to give her a brand new use. And this building will be the lifeblood of the regeneration and rejuvenation all along the Allegheny River,” the mayor said. “There are very few places that are more Pittsburgh than the terminal building. This place just is the very fabric of what we are.”

But when the Chicago-based development firm McCaffery Interests breaks ground on its plans for the historic building Tuesday, the Produce Terminal could again be at the center of a thriving Strip District. “I’m delighted,” said Robert Rubinstein, the executive director of Pittsburgh’s Urban Redevelopment Authority. The authority worked for nearly 10 years to hand off ownership of the landmark Produce Terminal to a developer that would transform it into a viable amenity. “It’s been a very long, arduous process. We’ve had, literally, a dozen staff people working on this project for the...
