What We Do
Formed by Downtown businesses, professionals, civic organizations, foundations and residents, the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership (PDP) is a dynamic, nonprofit organization that develops and implements innovative programs and initiatives to enhance Downtown Pittsburgh. We also promote and market this great urban center to millions of people as the region’s premier destination to do business, to call home, or to visit for the best in shopping, dining and entertainment. The PDP also stands as staunch advocates for all those who make Downtown part of their lives—from businesses to workers to residents.
The PDP focuses its resources on five strategic areas: Clean and Safe, Economic Development, Transportation, Marketing and Advocacy. Additionally, the PDP Manages Downtown’s Business Improvement District. In our work, we partner with government agencies and neighborhood associations, as well as businesses, foundations, non-profits, community, civic and cultural organizations.
