Allegheny County

The most urban of the region’s 10 counties is Allegheny, with Pittsburgh as the county seat.  Home to a major transportation asset, Pittsburgh International Airport – connecting the region to the world – the county’s airport corridor is where Neighborhood 91 is rising as an additive manufacturing epicenter first.  Upriver from downtown Pittsburgh, Allegheny County’s Mon Valley is home to nearly a dozen historic riverside towns. Ripe with redevelopment sites and opportunities for conversions/renovations, these towns have the space for enterprises looking to grow – manufacturing, creative industries and life sciences – yet are not far from the urban core and its assets.
