The Coro Center for Civic Leadership contributes to Pittsburgh's success at recycling its existing building stock. Coro Center for Civic Leadership's decision to establish residence at a location so intrinsically tied to Pittsburgh's industrial past, validates its commitment to recycling land for progress and change. The building owner, Pittsburgh Terminal Properties, has utilized this historic area, originally built as a warehouse. It is currently being transformed into a vibrant office complex. Its location takes advantage of the views across the river to downtown Pittsburgh, the infrastructure of the neighboring Southside, and its proximity to Station Square and the central business district of Pittsburgh.
Coro occupies eight bays on the fourth floor of the Terminal Way Properties. During the programming and schematic design process it was determined that Coro required a potentially flexible, open space plan for their main business function. Demountable fiberglass partitions and a raised floor system for mechanical and electrical distribution allow for the reconfiguration of office space and other functions. The main conference or training room serves as a more permanent function at the heart of the Coro space.
Renaissance 3 Architects was brought on board for the project by the Contractor, Jendoco Corporation in a designbuild arrangement. The project team made a commitment to follow the guidelines set forth under
LEED® for Commercial Interiors and served as a pilot project under this program. The building owner, encouraged by the tenant's commitment to sustainability, will be establishing future bicycle storage racks, showers and a building recycling collection area. In the overall process, the project team has succeeded in providing Coro with sustainable features reflective of their community involvement and corporate image.
