Construction is well underway on the development of Pittsburgh’s historic Carrie Furnace.

The 55 acres of developable land along the Monongahela River can accommodate between 550,000 to 600,000 SF of construction. Its unique backdrop — including the furnace structures built in 1881 — has piqued the interest of prospective tenants. In addition to a film studio, future use of the space is anticipated to include light manufacturing, life sciences, R&D, and other businesses that would benefit from proximity to a film production facility.

Regional Industrial Development Corporation (RIDC) engaged Bohler to begin the site planning and design of the first of potentially four film studios to be located between the tech-flex buildings. When completed, these facilities will give the Pittsburgh region a new, dedicated purpose-built studio presence.

Bohler’s Pittsburgh, PA office is providing site civil engineering, permitting, and landscape architecture services for this exciting new project.
