Mayor Menino toured the Innovation Center this morning, calling it "a place to make connections and to build relationships." The mayor also announced the new name of the building, District Hall, a reference to the central role it will play in the new innovation-centric Seaport District. “This novel approach to promoting and fostering collaboration to create new solutions, new businesses and new industries," said Mayor Menino, "will only further the City of Boston’s role as a global leader in solving the world’s greatest challenges through innovation."
As mentioned in the press release, the 12,000 square foot District Hall will be used for gatherings of startups and entrepreneurs as well as host a restaurant and test kitchen, all designed by our team.

A long stretch along the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh, once home to steel mills, suffered, like so many cities along the Rust Belt, from the decline of local industry. The Allegheny Riverfront Green Boulevard (ARGB) Study, led by Sasaki Associates with the help of Hacin + Associates, seeks to transform this 6.5-mile-long strip from an industrial corridor, filled with vacant tracts of land, into a mixed-use area that provides a robust connection between the existing neighborhood and riverfront.
The Pittsburgh Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) secured a $1.5 million Partnership for Sustainable Communities grant from the Department of Transportation and the Department of Housing and Urban Development to fund this study. Building on the 2010 Allegheny Riverfront Vision Plan by Perkins Eastman Architects, Sasaki Associates has conceived of a comprehensive plan that focuses on creating access to the Allegheny riverfront, developing parkland and green spaces, designing a bike-path along the railroad, turning the freight rail into a multimodal corridor with commuter rail service, and laying the groundwork for new residential developments and light industry to move into the area.
