Input sought on One Bigelow project at three August meetings

Rendering of One Bigelow project

The University is seeking input on the One Bigelow project — part of the ambitious Campus Master Plan for Oakland — at three meetings in August.

One Bigelow is the name of the project planned in the parking lot behind the new Oaklander Hotel and next to Soldiers and Sailor Memorial Hall and Museum. A rendering in the master plan shows two buildings with a green space between. When constructed, it would house the School of Computing and Information, which is now located on North Craig Street.

According to the University, an ad hoc committee has been working to help shape a vision for the project. The committee is now prepared to share preliminary thoughts with the University community, and to receive feedback and input.

Three sessions are scheduled to get input from the Pitt community:

  • Noon-1 p.m. Aug. 1 at the University Club, Conference Room A

  • 9-10 a.m. Aug. 7, at 121 Alumni Hall

  • 2-3 p.m. Aug. 13, at Hillman Library, G-49

Later in August, two more sessions will be held for the committee to report back on the input it has received and how the vision of the project has evolved as a result of the input.

  • 11 a.m.-noon, Aug. 28, at 120 Benedum Hall

  • 3-4 p.m. Aug. 29, at 121 Alumni Hall

More information on the current projects under consideration can be found on the Campus Master Plan website.
