Burns Scalo & RDC announce $75M next-level development at the front door to the Strip Local firms planning to begin spec development immediately.

PITTSBURGH, PA -- Burns Scalo Real Estate (BSRE) and RDC Design+Build, Inc. (RDC) today announced their partnership and plans for the development of a $75 Million, mix-used building named The Vision on Fifteenth. Sitting at the corner of 15th and Smallman Street, The Vision on Fifteenth will be the latest addition to Pittsburgh’s white-hot Strip District with plans to break ground in Q1 2020. The nine-story masterpiece will sit next to District Fifteen, the neighboring four-story, 100,000 square-foot office building constructed by RDC, which is the new Pittsburgh home to Facebook. Strategically positioned at the “front door” to the Strip District, The Vision on Fifteenth will offer natural and convenient walkability to both the Pittsburgh CBD and the flourishing retail and hospitality experience of the Strip District. The Vision on Fifteenth will be more than twice the size of its neighbor, boasting more than 275,000 square-feet of amenity-rich commercial office space, street-level restaurant and retail, plus additional research and development space; a contemporary amenity for the progressive-minded businesses that continue to flock to Pittsburgh and the thriving Strip District. Historically known for its success as a suburban owner, the Pittsburgh-based real estate firm has made aggressive movement in the last year-and-a-half into Pittsburgh’s fringe markets of Oakland, North Shore and now the Strip District. BSRE, already the leader in spec office development, will now add The Vision on Fifteenth to its growing portfolio of spec developments it has undertaken in the past two years. “We are incredibly excited to lend our expertise, alongside RDC, to a project of this magnitude”, said Jim Scalo, CEO, Burns Scalo Real Estate. “We’ve always been known for our progressive approach. The Vision on Fifteenth project is no different and fits perfectly into our long-term strategic plan.” “The Vision on Fifteenth is going to be an incredible addition to the Strip District and downtown communities, providing high-quality retail options for nearby workers and residents,” RDC CEO John Deklewa said. “We are excited to work collaboratively with Burns Scalo on this project as we watch our collective vision take shape.” Shawn Fox, President of RDC added, “We have had an incredible experience with the development of District Fifteen and cannot be more excited to break ground on this fantastic project with Burns Scalo and add to RDC’s contribution to the Strip District neighborhood.” The building will offer its tenants and their employees an unparalleled work-life experience, including oversized floorplates, sweeping terrace views of Downtown Pittsburgh and the Strip District, an interactive lobby video wall and the state-ofthe-art fitness amenities including direct access to outdoor recreational activities and an indoor rock-climbing wall. The development will welcome commuters of all-types with a multi-modal transportation facility, featuring: 390 parking spaces, 90 bike storage spaces, 20 electronic vehicle charging stations, and a bike/electric scooter sharing program. Construction is expected to be completed by the Summer of 2021. For leasing inquiries contact Scott DiGuglielmo at sdiguglielmo@burnsscalo.com, or 724.984.6251.
