About the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership

With a history of innovative programs and initiatives to foster a welcoming, economically viable Downtown, the PDP has been on a mission since 1994.

Focusing primarily on the Golden Triangle area, the PDP fulfills its mission by cleaning public spaces, providing safety liaison assistance, supporting improvements and marketing Downtown as the regional business and cultural center, and the premier location to live, work, shop, dine, play, and visit.

The PDP achieves its mission through partnerships with businesses, property owners and other organizations. In 1997, the PDP established a business improvement district (BID). Through the BID, property owners within the Golden Triangle agree to assess themselves to pay for services, provided by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, that directly benefit Downtown, such as cleaning, safety, marketing, and housing and transportation initiatives.

Through partnerships with individuals and organizations who share a vested interest in the future of Downtown, the PDP will continue to be one of Pittsburgh’s strongest advocates well into the 21st century.
