PITTSBURGH-Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh broke ground Friday on its newest library here. The $6 million project will be located at 1210 Federal St. in the North Side area of the city.

Karen Loysen of Pittsburgh-based Loysen + Kreuthmeier Architects designed the new library. Construction bids are currently being accepted, and building is expected to commence after Memorial Day.

The library will take up a 16,500-sf lot that was previously the site of a gas station. It will be built and fitted out to LEEDs Certified standard, with natural lighting and energy-conscious mechanical and electrical systems. Plans for the building feature a dedicated children’s programming area, an outdoor terrace and the Allegheny City Room, which will house historical collections of the neighborhood.
