Pittsburgh Urban Redevelopment Authority board members are expected to vote Thursday on whether to give Trek Development Group the final go ahead to start the 47-unit Mellon’s Orchard South development at Station and North Beatty streets.
Downtown-based Trek hopes to start construction within the next 30 days, with the first units completed in a year or less. It is paying the URA $600,000 for the land needed for the development.
“We’re excited to be working in the East Liberty neighborhood. It’s been a focus of a lot of attention and we’re happy to work in partnership with the URA, the mayor’s office, and the citizenry to address these important issues,” Trek president William Gatti said.
