Skyline Terrace, with its incredible views of downtown Pittsburgh, is a mixed-income multi-family housing development located on 47 acres in the center of Pittsburgh’s historic Hill District. Prior to redevelopment, it was comprised of 734 barrack style row houses, most dating back to the 1940’s.

The redevelopment plan replaced the row houses with 386 market rate and subsidized townhomes which include a mix of one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom units.

Mistick Construction was awarded the site development contract for the 47-acre project, removing thousands of cubic yards of excavation prior to the foundation work for the buildings. Then, partnering with The Alliance Construction Group, Inc., Mistick was awarded the general contracting for the first phase of the project which began January 2014.

Phase I – 186 Units, $54.5M
Phase I of the redevelopment project consisted of building 186 units and a community center as well as making upgrades to streets and public utility infrastructure.

Phase II – 90 Units, $19M
Phase II consisted of 90 residential units. 36 townhomes were built within 8 buildings and 54-units within a four-story apartment building. There are 6 accessible (UFAS) and 2 apartments for the hearing/visual. The townhomes themselves contain 4 UFAS accessible units.

Phase III – 52 units, $15.8M
Phase III consisted of 43 new residential townhomes throughout 13 buildings, 7 single family homes, and the rehabilitation of 2 existing ADA units. Construction of a new 3,600 SF community center was also involved. Exteriors consist of a mix of brick and cement lap siding. Interior finishes include tile bathroom floors, LVT vinyl plank throughout the first floors, and carpeted bedrooms. Unit mix includes 4 ADA one-bedroom, 28 two-bedroom, and 20 three-bedroom units.
