Pittsburgh Children’s Museum – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Nolan Sheehan Patten represented Pittsburgh Urban Initiatives in connection with the renovation of the vacant 18,000 square foot Carnegie Library Building adjacent to the Pittsburgh Children’s Museum in Allegheny County. Expanding the Museum footprint will make the Children’s Museum the largest cultural campus for children in the U.S, and the project will likely have employment and value-added effects throughout the region, not limited to Allegheny County. The cost of the project is estimated at $18 million for the construction phase of the project.
