Rugby, Al. Neyer Push Forward With Mixed Use Development In Pittsburgh

“One of the Strip District’s next significant redevelopment projects is ready to begin pursuing public approvals.

A firm called 225 Smallman Associates LP, which is affiliated with Rugby Realty Co., is scheduled to appear before the Pittsburgh Zoning Board of Adjustments on May 10, seeking a special exception for building height for their proposal at 2200 Smallman Street, according to agenda documents.

It’s a site of about four acres for which Rugby first bought the first parcels nearly 11 years ago. Since then, the company cleared a few mature, smaller industrial buildings from a larger development site that also now includes the former Benkovitz Seafood and Nordic Fisheries properties.

According to the zoning agenda, New Jersey-based Rugby proposes to build a seven-story, mixed-use building that will include a parking garage.

The company is pursuing a project expected to total 108.5 feet in height in a location in which the established zoning height limit is 60 feet and four stories.

An official for Rugby declined to comment on the proposal before zoning.

Lawrenceville-based Desmone Associates is the architect for the project, with which Rugby has been working with Cincinnati-based Al. Neyer as a joint venture partner.” – Tim Schooley, reporter, Pittsburgh Business Times
