Un-condemning the former candy factory next door. The city of Pittsburgh condemned this property in 2007. At roughly 8,000 square feet, the rehab was cost prohibitive. We purchased the building from a neighbor and decided to remove the spaces we couldn't afford. Now, the historic facade is saved and our new, single family, 3 story home will be built inside the existing walls. A courtyard leads to a garage at the rear and the rooftop deck will offer a 360 degree view of this amazing city.
Wish us luck and stop in for a drink on the roof!
