Walnut Capital, the development company behind Bakery Square and now Bakery Square 2.0 is asking for the bike community’s feedback on preliminary designs for the new Bakery Square 2.0 Development. The timing is good falling closely on the heels of the paper street article that talks about the “Great Northeast Passage” that everyone would like to see saved and made better/safer. You’ll see from the preliminary designs that better connections are made into Shadyside, and a new bike/ped connection is being added (lime green line). However, the biggest change is that they now want to eliminate a large section of the bike trail (dark green line) that runs parallel to Penn in favor of a slow/shared street through the middle of the development (turquoise line). Please comment on these plans below and we will make sure Walnut Capital receives them.
