  1. District 15 project in the Strip District is designed to attract talent The first commercial building at Riverfront Landing, the master-planned site in the Strip District, will have 18-foot ceilings on its first floor and a direct loading dock. That will prove attractive to R&D companies, says Shawn Fox, president of Bridgeville-based RDC Inc. “We’re in the Strip District and it’s the center of automated vehicles and artificial intelligence,” he says. “For robotics users, that ceiling height and direct loading dock can create a R&D-style space on the first floor.” Murdoch Office Building Oakland Forbes ave Apartments Oakland: Pitt Syria Mosque Site Mixed Use
  2. $70 million Glasshouse at Station Square will feature 320 apartments, many transit options, river views In mid-December, Trammell Crow broke ground on Glasshouse, which is projected to have 320 luxury rental apartments when it is completed in 2019. Financed by Trammell Crow and Northwestern Mutual, the $70 million development will transform more than 15,000 square feet of land near Station Square, which has primarily been utilized for parking. Residents will have access to a pool, a 335-space underground garage and outdoor kitchen and dining areas. In adherence with DEP regulations, archaeologist Christine Davis is exploring the site for glass artifacts, and the developer is partnering with Pittsburgh Glass Center to design unique glass elements for each unit. “We also have a massive ‘jewel box’ amenity space — a two-story indoor space connected to a front ‘porch’ with a cantilevered roof for use during inclement weather,” adds Murray-Coleman. The architect is Baltimore-based firm Hord Copland Macht. The site is along the Great Allegheny Passage, a popular bike trail that connects Pittsburgh to Washington, D.C. Tenants will have access to their own free, on-site bike-share program through Healthy Ride. https://www.nextpittsburgh.com/latest-news/glasshouse-transit-oriented-development-under-way-at-station-square/ Bakery Square III Office Building CRAFT breaks ground on 68 townhomes that could change Upper Lawrenceville In March, Toronto-based CRAFT Development Corporation will break ground on this site with 68 townhouses called Mews on Butler. Units will be available for pre-sale at prices starting in the low $400s. The expected completion date for the first phase of the development is in the fall. The project will consist of a townhouse-style condominium community between 55th and 56th Streets on Butler Street. Two collections (called the Hanlon and the Gregory, after the property’s original owners) will offer units with 1,850 to 2,650 square feet of living space, two-car garages and other amenities.
  3. Pittsburgh authority plans 9 floors of high-end condos at former Saks site The Pittsburgh Urban Redevelopment Authority board of directors on Thursday unanimously agreed to a limited partnership with a Washington County developer in building nine floors of high-end condominiums on top of a new Downtown parking garage in exchange for $2.2 million in air rights that the URA owns above the garage. Washington-based Millcraft Investments is proposing 86 one-, two- and three-bedroom condos ranging in price from $260,000 to $2 million above the 580-space garage at 350 Oliver Ave., the former site of a Saks Fifth Avenue Department store, which closed in 2012. https://triblive.com/local/allegheny/13860754-74/pittsburgh-authority-partners-with-developer-to-build-9-floors-of-high-end-condos Eighth and Penn Development
  4. Pittsburgh is getting a man-made lagoon in the Esplanade, the planned North Side development which includes a Ferris wheel. If all goes as scheduled, it will be the first urban lagoon in the world with the capability to convert from a “paradise-like turquoise body of water” with swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding and white sand beaches into a frozen skating rink. Crystal Lagoons announced its partnership today with Millcraft Investments as part of the 15-acre mixed-use Esplanade development along the Ohio River in the North Side. Piatt expects to include a full-service hotel and a mix of condominiums, townhomes and apartments — 700 units in all — within the project, which is expected to cost more than $500 million. Food and manufacturing incubators, water taxis and 300,000 square feet of office are planned, along with a marina and kayak rentals. To complement the climate-controlled “Pittsburgh Wheel” — which will operate year-round — Piatt is even entertaining the possibility of launching a small “Pittsburgh Firsts” museum on the site. https://www.nextpittsburgh.com/city-design/pittsburgh-is-getting-a-two-acre-lagoon-and-ice-rink-in-the-esplanade/
  5. I think there are several converging issues that are creating the additional storefront vacancies in the Southside. One factor is that there now are several other neighborhoods that have established nightlife districts and are consistently siphoning away patrons from the bars and clubs on Carson st. Also, the neighborhood has matured to the point where it is transitioning more from the nightlife aspect that has dominated it for the past decade which causing a lot of business turnover. Finally, and the biggest contributor to the problem IMO is that the local political leadership in the neighborhood is almost completely useless. They tried instituting ridiculous permit parking regulations in an attempt to fix the free-for-all parking situation that tends to happen on weekend nights due to the popular nightlife. Unfortunately their "solution" has instead had the effect of preventing employees/customers of daytime businesses from parking conveniently and has not targeted the late night crowd as it was supposedly intended to do. This is sadly causing many daytime businesses to close and move outside of the neighborhood to avoid the problems it has created for their businesses.
  6. There are actually a few major projects on the board for the Southside as well that tend to get overshadowed by more booming areas at the moment: Forest City Apartment Development/Station Sq. over 300 apartments in the 1st phase has been approved, the terminal building highline project is actually in the Southside, also another 300+ unit apartment is going in near the riverfront park on Wharton st: http://www.post-gazette.com/business/development/2016/11/17/New-apartment-project-takes-building-boom-to-South-Side/stories/201611170123. 4 office buildings are currently still in the proposal phase for the Southside Works as well. The Southside also probably has the most infill housing projects going on right now in the city.
  7. Just to clarify, Uptown is actually a neighborhood in Pittsburgh adjacent to downtown that includes Duquesne University and the Penguins arena, there is a decent amount of apartment/housing development happening there at the moment but the neighborhood itself still has a ways to go. This is correct and the larger region that those neighborhoods and many others are lumped into is usually referred to as the East End. The East end is huge and contains over 40% of the population of the city.

  12. There are a bunch of new interesting development updates for Pittsburgh since I last posted "Stark expects to begin work on the redevelopment in the first quarter of 2018. It is planning about 160,000 square feet of office space on the upper floors and 60,000 square feet of retail on the first two floors of the building, which takes up an entire block between Fifth and Forbes avenues." http://www.post-gazette.com/business/development/2017/08/21/Stark-Enterprises-Frank-Seder-department-store-Smithfield-Street-Downtown-Pittsburgh-redevelopment/stories/201708210014
  13. East Liberty Transit Center/ Eastside III TOD The planned Eastside III development will be centered on a new $52 million transit center and will include more than 360 apartments and 50,000 square feet of retail. The new multi-modal transit center will include a new bicycle parking garage, pedestrian links, and a hub for nearly 1,000 daily bus departures and arrivals. A new connection to Shadyside will be constructed via a pedestrian bridge.
