Garden Theater and ARDE
Construction work is ongoing at the Garden Theater which will be turned over to the restaurant ARDE so that they can complete their fit out of the space. ARDE hopes to open by Thanksgiving of this year.
Construction also continues on the second floor of the Garden Theater and is turning out beautifully.
Masonic Building and City of Asylum/Pittsburgh
Allegheny City Development is working to close on the Masonic Building with the URA in the next few weeks. Once this closing occurs, construction will begin and City of Asylum/Pittsburgh will occupy the first floor and below grade space, while apartments will be constructed by the developer on the upper two floors.
RFPs for Other Buildings
Next week, the URA will release a Request for Proposals (RFP) for all of the other buildings on the Garden Theater Block. Responses will be due in late August. Five developers responded to a recent RFP for the Bradberry and 1113 – 1115 Federal Street and these developers can amend their original proposal to include additional buildings, or just stand pat with their existing proposal.
