Your Connection Begins at the Corner of Eighth & Penn

Honoring our History and Building our Future


Connecting History, Culture and Modern Living

Eighth & Penn consists of the restoration of two existing historic buildings at 711 and 713 Penn Avenue. The McNally Building (711 Penn Ave) and the Bonn Building (713 Penn Ave) have been fixtures of downtown Pittsburgh since the 1890's and are turn-of-the-century, masonry buildings, rich with historic character.

The facades and storefronts of these buildings have been restored, with the interiors renovated to provide space for rental apartment units & other amenities. The addition forms a continuation of the Penn Avenue streetscape, fusing the existing parking lot at the corner of 8th & Penn with new construction that is modern, but sympathetic to the historic buildings.
