Some Developments in the News

Earlier this week developers Walnut Capital brought plans to the city for the conversion of 162-164 Fort Duquesne Blvd. into office and roughly 70 apartments. The $30 million project will be built by PJ Dick Inc. Strada is designing now and construction is expected in the spring.

Spring bidding is expected on the next phase of the Providence Point senior community in Scott Township, near Heidelberg. TEDCO Construction is the construction manager/agent for the owner and will bid the $40 million-plus project in packages, including a general package.

Late this month, it’s expected that the RFP will go out for CM services for the $100 million expansion of St. Clair Hospital.

  1. Any update on the old Easter Seals Building re-development on Ft. Duquesne Blvd? Last we heard plans were submitted to city officials by Walnut Capital, Strada Architects for office and residential building 2 years ago. Thanks –

    1. You’d have to confirm with Walnut Capital but I believe the project is on the back burner while Walnut Capital focuses on what will be a couple hundred million dollars invested in 4 office projects in Oakland over the next few years. Strada & PJ Dick are their design/construction team.
