Denissa Visconti, Community Manager at the SkyVue Leasing Office located at 120 McKee Place, is pleased with the building’s progress.  “I am extremely proud of this building and it fits right in. It will be a beautiful addition to Oakland –  we are certainly raising the bar on Pittsburgh living,” said Visconti.

The SkyVue Apartments will have tons of amenities to fit the needs of daily living for all ages, such as:

  • 24-Hour indoor/outdoor fitness center

The community meets the needs of all walks of life, and that includes animals with pet walking areas and a pet washing station. For a relaxing night with friends, the 7th floor terrace is perfect for the socialites with plenty of seating, green space, fire pits and grills. SkyVue Apartments has a mix of furnished and non-furnished apartments and will be a secure-entry building. “We definitely picked a great contractor for the project – it’s really moving!” she continued. “We can’t wait to open the building and show everyone all of the amenities and just how beautiful she is! I encourage everyone to visit our web site: for a fly-through tour of the building.”

SkyVue will also include several commercial spaces with frontage both along Forbes and Fifth Avenue.  There is 4,652 SF of space available for lease along Forbes Avenue, and Fifth will feature a street level 2,511 SF space and a 2,749 SF space on the terrace level.  If you are interested in learning more, you are encouraged to call Bryan Joseph of Hanna Langholz Wilson Ellis at 412-261-2200.
