950 Progress Street (Front Lobby)
Categories: Residential, Adaptive Reuse
Amore Management Company, MCM Company, and The Ferchill Group announce a new, 151-unit loft apartment building on Pittsburgh’s North Shore that combines the iconic history of H.J. Heinz’s original headquarters, stunning architectural elements, green building practices, and a convenient, walkable, urban location.
The building, constructed in Romanesque Revival Style in 1930, originally served as the Heinz Service Building on Pittsburgh’s North Shore and was designed for the enjoyment of Heinz employees.
It contained a 3,000 seat auditorium where employees enjoyed plays and performances, as well as dining and recreational areas. The two-story lobby was finished with marble and bronze, and murals decorated the walls. Now, the design of the building’s interior at Heinz at 950 North Shore incorporates many existing architectural features and materials to ensure the historic character of the building remains intact.
YOUR EXPERIENCE: 25-minute guided tours, at top and bottom of the hour. Tours will consist of history of the building, behind-the-scenes look of the old theater, tour of the common spaces and explanation of what they used to be, and a look at a 1 and a 2 br apartment.
