Pittsburgh is marketing more than 3,000 vacant lots and abandoned buildings for sale through an online searchable database that went online Wednesday.

The website features a map and search options for 3,089 properties, most of them vacant land.

City officials said the public, in a first, can find all public properties available for sale online.

“Since the early 1990s, I have wanted to display the city’s tax and property information on a visual basis,” said Finance Director Paul Leger, who also served under the mayoral administrations of Tom Murphy and Bob O’Connor. “It’s a dream come true and a real convenience for anybody looking to purchase city property.”

Users can click on the map, browse the entire property list or use multiple search options including street names and parcel numbers to find property descriptions and photographs.
