project Summary:

The Pittsburgh Produce Terminal, located in the Strip District, was an iconic railroad fruit auction & sales terminal built in 1926.  Formerly, it was the central hub for the regional wholesale produce industry.

In 2020, the historic renovation took place to create a mixed-use property for restaurants, shops, and small businesses.  25% of the location will be used for local businesses. Platforms once used for loading fruit onto trains have been transformed into extended walking and sitting areas for pedestrians.

Clista furnished and installed a complete fire alarm system.  In addition, the building includes a CCTV network utilizing indoor and outdoor cameras and an emergency lighting system.  All new lighting on Spruce Way and Smallman Street stretching 5 city blocks will welcome a lively, vibrant scene.

Project Challenges:

  • Renovations stretched over 5 city blocks
  • Demolishing and restoring 4 existing loading docs to incorporate electrical duct banks 8 feet below the top of the loading docs
  • Encountered the findings of old underground tunnels
  • Ran one run of conduit over 1/4 mile equating to 1,490 feet long
