Pittsburgh 2030 District: Oakland Formally Launched August 28, 2014

On August 28, 2014, the Pittsburgh 2030 District officially expanded into the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh, making us the first 2030 District in the nation to have two distinct boundaries.  The 22 Founding Property Partners in Oakland committed 244 buildings and 24.5 million square feet join our Downtown Partners in working  towards 50% reductions in energy consumption, water use, and transportation emissions by the year 2030.  With 62% of the buildings within the Oakland boundary (and 80.5% of the square footage), the Pittsburgh 2030 District: Oakland effort has great potential to continue making Pittsburgh's building stock more efficient.
