Large office renovation accommodates state office move

Piatt Place is the transformation of a former Lazarus-Macy’s department store in downtown Pittsburgh. Owned by Millcraft Industries, Piatt Place is now a hip mix of luxury condominiums, street-side restaurants and Class A office space.

Al. Neyer completed interior renovation for a prominent office tenant, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. From the earliest stages and throughout lease negotiations, Al. Neyer worked with the owner to develop a real estate solution, including reliable pricing and design elements, which were responsive to the tenant’s office requirements. Project scope included 165,000 SF of office space on four stories in the former department store, transformed by a communicating staircase open to a glass atrium that existed in the space.

State agencies, including the Securities and Exchange Commission, departments of education, community and economic development and the Governor’s office are located at Piatt Place.
