Crews restore heat to Shadyside apartment building



PITTSBURGH - After several days of work, crews have restored heat to a 300-unit apartment building in Shadyside.

The Cathedral Mansion had been without heat since late Saturday night.

Attorney John Ramsey was one of the only residents still staying at the nine-story high rise on Ellsworth Avenue.

“I don’t think it’s anyone’s fault. It’s just one of those things that just happens,” Ramsey said. “I’m fine. When they told me, I didn’t know.”

The building had been without heat since the boiler broke down, and some residents called the Health Department to complain that their units were too cold.

Channel 11’s Timyka Artist reported some of the building’s tenants are Carnegie Mellon University students who won’t return from winter break until Jan. 17.

The repairs were finished Monday afternoon and the building’s heat has been restored.
