Park7 Group, the developer for Empire Apartments, hired Massaro Corporation to build a mixed-use housing complex in the heart of the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh.
Empire will be within walking distance to both the University of Pittsburgh as well as Carnegie Mellon. Construction began in early summer of 2016 and has a 26 month construction schedule. The project is expected to be ready for the 2018-2019 school year.
The 17-story building will allow for parking to be placed on the first six floors of the structure.
The seventh floor will host a swimming pool, gym, sauna, and golf simulator–a handful of the many amenities to entice future residents.
Floor eight to seventeen will be a mixture of single, double, and triple rooms to house both students and young professionals that desire to live in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh.
