In the heart of Lawrenceville, a gritty East End neighborhood in Pittsburgh, a hot building market is capitalizing on the city’s residential boom. Vacant for many years, the Foundry at 41st was formerly a 19th-century foundry site for shaping metal. Now it has been reimagined into an ‘industrial chic’ development featuring 182 luxury apartments, with nearly 9,000 square feet of amenity space including an outdoor pool, a rooftop terrace, a dog park connected to an indoor pet spa, and a public park along Willow Street. The use of Unilock Promenade™ Plank Pavers in a variety of finishes and colors contribute to the uniqueness of the architecture and create a hip vibe for spaces in the entrance and courtyard. The exterior retains remnants from its past including the centerpiece of the project, Bay 4, a hulking remnant of a former mill building, with rust and silver corrugated metal, glass and green accents.
