At Shadyside Commons, the Strada team has refreshed a large multi-unit residential building, strengthening the appeal of 12,000 SF of interior common spaces as well as an exterior courtyard.
A 3-story brick structure at the edge of the Shadyside neighborhood, the Bindley Hardware Company Building (1903) was converted to a 147-unit apartment complex in 1985.
Current renovations have transformed cramped common spaces making them open and welcoming, allowing residents to meet, read, or watch TV in an atmosphere enhanced by abundant natural light and original wood beams. The renovated interior opens up to a previously underused courtyard which is now organized into a series of casual seating areas with new lighting, canopies, a fire pit, and grilling area. Strada also designed upgrades for the building entry and leasing office to complete the refresh of this historic warehouse building.
