• Construction begins on new apartment complex at SouthSide Works


    PITTSBURGH - A new 280-unit apartment complex will soon join the SouthSide Works.

    The $56 million project is just steps away from UPMC's Rooney Sports Complex and walking distance to the SouthSide Works.

     Crews will break ground Wednesday on the project along Sidney Street. 

    Young professionals say they are already looking into apartment availability. 

    "I really like South Side because it has a lot of good music and art and friendly people," said Peter Herman.

    The area has been booming with development, but there have been struggles in recent years to fill empty storefronts. The hope is this new complex will help drive up that demand.

    The developer said the hope is to have construction complete by summer 2021.
