garden theater block apartments mixed-use redevelopment : pittsburgh, pa

Client: Trek Development Group and Q Development

The new five-story building anchors what is considered the most prominent corner in the city’s historic North Side, portal to a historic park and a rejuvenated historic district. PWWG’s design for 57 market rate apartments and first floor commercial space features clean lines, massing, and materials that mix with skill and restraint with adjacent historic structures. PWWG’s scope includes renovation of the nearby Morton House, combined Second Empire-style townhouses on the same block, into eight apartments. The developers have worked closely for years with a host of neighborhood organizations to reflect community priorities in this redevelopment of a major site. The project recently cleared all zoning and planning reviews to launch construction, with occupancy expected early 2023.

LEED certification is targeted.


Garden Theater (existing renovated): 6,823 SF, 2 stories;

Corner Building (new): 50,526 SF, 5 stories;

Morton House (existing renovated): 8,371 SF, 3 stories

Total apartments = 57 (46 in corner building, 8 in Morton House and 3 in Garden Theater)
