Mellon’s Orchard South is the newest addition to Pittsburgh’s East End. It is a mixed-income residential community featuring apartment, townhome, and loft-style living options. With construction on-schedule to finish in early 2021, the 47 units have individually controlled central heating and cooling, open concept kitchen and living areas and spacious rooms with large windows. (We also offer pet friendly living!). Located in the bustling East Liberty neighborhood, the property is in walking distance to plenty of restaurants, shopping, and the historic and beautiful Highland Park. The community space is perfect for spending time with neighbors, friends and family and features a brand-new laundry room. The property is on a bus and bike lane, making moving around the city a breeze.
Meeting the need for more affordable housing in East Liberty, Mellon’s Orchard South offers an array a of affordable 1-bedroom and a 2-bedroom living options. The development stems the tide by providing a variety of affordable options and one with an application preference for those displaced from Penn Plaza. TREK Development Group works closely with local agencies and community groups to access those forced to move and notify them of the opportunities at Mellon’s Orchard South.
As part of this development, Trek Development worked directly with the City to provide for the re-establishment of the east liberty street grid, which was lost in the 60’s due to Urban Renewal and the creation of Penn Circle, a one way loop around the business district. The reconfiguration of Penn Circle to two-way traffic and the reconnection of both Beatty and Harvard Streets, which are currently parking lots will establish a connection to the surrounding residential neighborhoods lost over 65 years ago.
Mellon’s Orchard South also offers market rate, 1-bedroom units starting at $1700 a month. Applications will be available for this property starting, Friday, October 16th,2020.
