ITTSBURGH, PA – High Street Residential and Northwestern Mutual announce that construction has commenced on Glasshouse, a 5-story, class A residential mixed-use building featuring 319 apartments — including studio, one-, one+den and two- bedroom units ranging in size from 665-to-1,200 s/f — with ground floor restaurant retail space and 335 indoor parking spaces. Glasshouse is located on the site of Pittsburgh’s historic and prolific glassmaking facto- ries and is uniquely positioned on the bank of the Monongahela

River, overlooking Pittsburgh’s “Golden Triangle” Central Busi- ness District. The project will be ready for occupancy in summer 2019. “Glasshouse will set the stan- dard for luxury residential development in the downtown area,” said Chris Sencindiver , principal with High Street Residential ’s Northeast Metro Business Unit. “In addition to a clean, eclectic style with world- class amenities, this unique location is within walking dis- tance of the CBD and various modes of transportation, includ- ing the Station Square light rail

station. It is going to be a very desirable place to live, work and play, and we are pleased to be partnering with Northwestern Mutual to truly transform this site and help to establish a new neighborhood for Pittsburgh.” Indoor project amenities in- clude a resort-style club room, game room, e-lounge, entertain- ment kitchen, fitness center, yoga room, as well as a confer- ence center, all overlooking three large outdoor courtyards. Residents will have access to the meticulously landscaped courtyards, a pool, multiple outdoor kitchens, open seating, a large communal turf area for movies and recreation, with incredible views of the historic Smithfield Street Bridge and downtown Pittsburgh. Out- side, the project is situated adjacent to the beginning of the Great Allegheny Passage, a walking/running/biking trail system that, with the C&O Canal, forms a continuous link between Pittsburgh and Wash- ington D.C. There will also be a dog wash, bike shop/storage and a new sculpture park area with outdoor restaurant seating. The project will incorporate many sustainable building features and will be National Green Building Standard Certified. “Northwestern Mutual sees the strength of the Pittsburgh market and is excited to be in- volved in what we consider to be the premier apartment commu- nity in the city. We’re proud to partner with High Street Resi- dential on this unique and ex- citing project with spectacular views of the city skyline,” said Tom Zale , VP of real estate with Northwestern Mutual . Glasshouse is directly ad- jacent to the Station Square mixed-use development, a nationally recognized $100 million historic conversion of railroad warehouses, passen- ger terminals and office build- ings into a mixed-use complex comprised of office, retail and entertainment options.
