Seton Hill University Downtown Campus Master Plan, Greensburg, PA
Urban Design Associates (UDA) prepared a Downtown Campus Master Plan for Seton Hill University, a major institution situated adjacent to Greensburg. The university wanted to build a new campus in Greensburg’s central downtown. This new urban campus is viewed by the city as a key component of their revitalization strategy as outlined in their Comprehensive Plan. With the full-time presence of students, faculty, and staff, the new campus will leverage private investment in surrounding buildings.
Connectivity is of primary importance to the University since both campuses will be used by students on a daily basis. Achieving this goal requires strong pedestrian connections between the campuses, as well as improvements to the sidewalks, a railroad underpass, and intersections.
This project was completed in 2008.
