Developed by High Street Residential, Glasshouse is a 5-story, Class A residential mixed-use building featuring 319 apartments - including studio, one-, one+den, two-bedroom units ranging in size from 665 to 1,200 square feet - with ground floor restaurant retail space and 335 indoor parking spaces. Glasshouse is located on the site of Pittsburgh's historic and prolific glassmaking factories and is uniquely positioned on the bank of the Monongahela River, overlooking Pittsburgh's "Golden Triangle" Central Business District. The project will be ready for occupancy in summer 2019.
Indoor amenities include a resort-style club room, game room, e-lounge, entertainment kitchen, fitness center, yoga room, as well as a conference center, all overlooking three largo 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. Outside, 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 Washington, 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 (NGBS) Certified.
Glasshouse is directly adjacent to the Station Square mixed-use development, a nationally recognized $100 million historic conversion of railroad warehouses, passenger terminals and office buildings into a mixed-use complex comprised of office, retail and entertainment options. Residents will have easy pedestrian access to restaurants, hotel and office space at Station Square as well as the new Highmark Stadium, home of the Pittburgh Riverhounds professional soccer team.
The project offers excellent access to major interstate highways, including I-279 North, I-376 East and West, as well as waterway access by ferries and personal boats, which dock at the foot of Station Square. Glasshouse has easy access into downtown (both vehicular and walking) via the Smithfield Street bridge located right at the project's front door.
