Frequently Asked Questions 

Welcome to LoftsinPittsburgh. If you don't see the answer to your question, please submit your question.

What is your definition of a loft?

There are many different definitions of a loft. Lofts should have tall ceilings and an open floor plan. It should have exposed ceilings and ductwork with original hardwood or concrete floors. If it's two stories high, part of the upper floor would overlook the lower floor.


Why isn't a particular property classified as a loft?

We use the definition above. If it is a loft or loft-like, we will be happy to add it to the loft directory. If a loft project is missing, please submit a request and we will research it.


Where do you get your information?
We gather and verify data from various sources. We start with the websites for the property and developer as well as any articles. We also research data from city government agencies, planning boards, architects, and construction companies. Our property descriptions focus on fact-based information and exclude the sales pitch.

Why don't you have details or pricing about a specific unit for sale or rent?
We do not track the details, pricing, and availability of specific units because there are better sources. We hope our directory helps you in your search since there is no other comprehensive directory.

Where can I find information about a specific unit for sale or rent?
Contact the realtor, developer, or apartment property manager. We include website and contact names if available.

What geographic areas do you cover?
We focus on the City of Pittsburgh. Here is a list of neighborhoods.
