Greensburg Developer Opportunities
Several drivers influence development opportunities within the City of Greensburg: cultural district visitors, daytime workforce, vehicle traffic, resident population, and undergraduate and graduate student enrollment.
The Palace Theatre and the Westmoreland Museum of American Art alone attract approximately 55,000 people to the downtown. The universities bookending the City – Seton Hill University and the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg – have a combined enrollment of nearly 4,000 students. Thousands of vehicles from the surrounding townships travel through the downtown daily. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry, downtown Greensburg is home to two of the top five largest employers in Westmoreland County – the Westmoreland County Courthouse and Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital. Investors and entrepreneurs are putting together projects to capitalize on these market forces.
