    PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Planning Commission voted to approve the latest revision of Rugby Realty’s Brickworks at 21st and Smallman development, a proposal to build a two-building project of seven stories and 390,000 square feet of office space at a four-acre hinge site in a fast redeveloping Strip District.

Neyer and Desmone Architects, presented a revision adding more detail and segmenting to a curved glass curtain wall facade that drew considerable criticism previously by the commission, among a host of other changes.

    It was enough to result in six commission votes to approve the $80 million development project, with abstentions from commissioners Fred Brown and Sabina Deitrick.
