The Penn at Walnut on Highland is a six-story mixed-use building perched on a primary corner of East Liberty, a historic and dynamic commercial center within Pittsburgh. The building’s common spaces welcome residents as they arrive home, with living areas, a kitchen, and a TV lounge with tiered seating. Upper floors contain studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom apartments. A game room, a meeting room, and a roof deck shared by residents are accessed via the second floor. Most residents have balconies in their apartments with views of this energetic urban district. An eclectic facade knits it all together, weaving windows and balconies together with unique historic storefronts that were preserved as an homage to the previous occupants of the site.
