PITTSBURGH —

Pittsburgh's Strip District, a hotbed for new housing, will also have a complex of 11 housing units, each selling from $1 million.

Charles Hammel, president of PittOhio Supply Chain, a major trucking firm, plans to convert a vacant one-story warehouse, with a new second floor, into the housing complex at 2501 Smallman St.

“My wife, Kristen, is the one behind this project,” he said. The complex, which will be Gold certified, will offer two- and three-story units, three to five bedrooms, two-car integral garages, private balconies, a private courtyard, custom designed water feature and amenities such as a fitness/spa center, a community room with attached catering kitchen and 24-hour concierge service.

Hammel said once city approval is obtained, work could begin in two or three months. Northwood Realty Service is handling sales.
