Located in Pittsburgh’s diverse, up-and-coming East Liberty neighborhood, the Quad at Mellon’s Orchard is slated to bring a new liveliness to this evolving urban area. The development will feature a blend of 264 residential units among four distinct buildings, each designed to respond to the adjacent streets. Activated streetscapes, roof terraces, community gardens, and articulated facades engage the surrounding neighborhood while wrapping around the site to create a private courtyard experience for events and informal gatherings. Fostering community is central to the Quad dedicated club rooms, yoga studio, and fitness center. The interiors draw upon the artistic and creative soul of the surrounding neighborhoods through implementation of local artists’ work and unique design elements that bring together the community’s farming and industrial roots. Natural materials such as wood are juxtaposed with industrial metals and contemporary lines, creating a striking aesthetic. Conveniently located near a bus stop and a dedicated bike lane, the Quad at Mellon’s Orchards is well positioned as a magnificent homebase for engaging the city.
