“Back when the produce terminal in the Strip was being considered for renovation, some people were quite vocal about the idea of making cut-throughs in the building. One concern was destroying the character of the iconic but decaying building,” observes Kristy Locklin of NEXT Pittsburgh.

“Years later, there are now three so-called passageways recently completed in The Terminal, the mixed-use redevelopment of the Strip’s five-block-long produce terminal. The enclosed and heated passageways at 17th, 18th and 20th streets sport benches, creative lighting in a dazzling array on the ceiling and a collection of colorful graphics about Pittsburgh.”
