Notes:Hopper Place

From Pittsburgh Streets

"The Stacks will redevelop the former Packaging Corporation of America (PCA) site, reusing the warehouse bays and steel frame structure. A 75-foot tall stainless steel hopper, used by PCA to facilitate box assembly, will be relocated on the site and will be uplit to serve as a beacon across the river. A new road, Hopper Place, will extend 28th Street to the riverfront and through the development." [1]

Source:Hopper-place: "Hopper Park and Hopper Place are named for the 3-story stainless steel hopper that still stands along the riverfront. The hopper was originally used to discharge glue in the manufacturing of cardboard boxes by the former Packaging Corporation of America. The foundations and framing of this former warehouse were retained to construct The Stacks @ 3 Crossings."
