Macy's Department Store Conversion

Macy's Department Store
400 Fifth Ave.
Pittsburgh, PA 15219

Neighborhood: Downtown - Golden Triangle

The developer Core Realty plans to convert the Macy's department store building into apartment residences, shopping, restaurant, and potentially a hotel. Macy's currently occupies floors 1-6 and the mezzanine levels of the 13-story, nearly 1 million square foot building. The building was originally built in the late 1800's. 

Plans call for shopping and a restaurant to be retained on floors 1 to 4 and the mezzanine level, potentially a 155-room hotel on floors 5 and 6, plus floors 7 to 13 converted into 311 apartment residences.

There would be 71 studios, 169 one-bedroom units, and 71 two-bedroom units.

The rooftop would have community amenities including a pool and deck area, two tennis courts, a running track, and green areas. There would be 246 parking spaces and storage for 290 bicycles underground.

The developer agreed to purchase the building from Macy's in 2014 and presented its plans to the city in May 2015. Construction is expected to start in July and be finished in two years.
