Oakland – Pittsburgh’s Hottest Development Market

With strong economic growth and a dynamic downtown vibe, Oakland is Pittsburgh’s largest university and hospital district attracting over 1.2 million visitors annually. Oakland is hot- experiencing an unprecedented development boom- and attracting new investment in mixed use office and residential spaces. As a result, it is the place where people want to work and live and where companies, large and small, want to locate. In the past 24 months alone, Oakland has seen over 1 million s.f. of new construction including Skyvue, the region’s largest apartment complex providing for new elegant upscale residential units, complimented by the Residence Inn Marriott Hotel offering over 140 rooms. Plans are underway for an additional 500,000 s.f. of new construction offering new apartments, office spaces and more ground floor retail space. Oakland has a growing startup community, locating in many of Oakland’s retrofitted turn of the century architectural brick structures along the Fifth and Forbes Avenue retail corridor and within walking distance to world class museums, parks and unique shops and eateries. According to a WalletHub Study, Pittsburgh is 2017’s 10th best metro area for STEM professionals and RJ Metrics has named Pittsburgh the top 5 fastest growing startup hub in the US.
