  1. An Artful Blend: The Eighth and Penn Development

    Tucked along Eighth Street, an angular flourish of copper clad wall leads to a public walkway connecting Katz Plaza.

    A joint venture between two Pittsburgh based developers, Trek Development and Q Development, blend both old and new together, in their newest project for their eighth and Penn apartment building. They will integrate two slender buildings, the McNally and Bonn buildings, both built in the 1890’s; with new construction to create a 135-residential unit apartment building. The building will also house 190,000 sq. ft. of street level commercial space.
