Pittsburgh’s Planning Commission on Tuesday approved The Andy Warhol Museum’s new $45 million entertainment venue in the city’s North Shore.
The 57,776-square-foot entertainment venue on Sandusky Street is slated to include a first-floor concert venue with standing room for up to 1,000 people. Plans presented to the commission also showed a second-floor mezzanine and an events space that could hold up to 360 people on the fourth floor. The third floor is designed for offices and support spaces.
The site is currently an asphalt parking lot for the museum.
The new entertainment venue is part of the Warhol’s Pop District initiative, which aims to include “physical and programmatic expansion of the museum,” said Dan Law, the museum’s associate director.
