The_pittsburgh_exteriorThe Pittsburgh conversion on lower Queen Anne developed by Pioneer Property Group has started sales on their one bedroom units.

This three story apartment conversion comprises 4 buildings with 2 of them connected by one single entrance located along Warren Ave N and includes studios and one bedroom units. The 3rd and 4th building have a different exterior design also connected by one single entrance. These are located on the corner of Warren Ave N and John St and only come with 2 bedroom units.

Along the same street to the south of Pittsburgh is a new apartment construction project, Barrientos, which is slated for completion in Oct this year. The brick facade for this apartment will create a consistent look for Warren Ave N.

Compared to Queen’s Court, the Pittsburgh has more extensive work being done and the ceiling heights in the units are taller as well. 

Living_roomAlmost all units come with either a wood burning or gas fireplace. The floor plans are a lot more livable than Queen Court’s. The original built in and decorative features still remain intact (restored door knobs, claw foot tubs, casework, archways and ironwork). Those are probably the most interesting features in the building.

Two bedroom units will be available for move-in in approximately 9 weeks’ time.

One bedroom’s starts from high $200,000’s to mid $300,000’s and two bedroom’s range from low $400,000’s to mid $400,000’s.
