complimenting neighborhood retail + residential

Client: The Mosites Company 1660 Murray Avenue L.P.

Located at a prominent corner where residential and commercial zones intersect, this 27-unit condominium blends easily into the fabric of Squirrel Hill, one of Pittsburgh’s most vibrant neighborhoods. It took creative zoning solutions, community involvement, and sympathetic design to successfully develop this property. The building wraps around the apse of a historic stone church, forming a European-style courtyard with an arcade and trees.
