The Cosmopolitan Apartments
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


A 6-story, 170,000 square foot residential apartment building with an interior ground floor parking level, located in the Ross Township suburb of Pittsburgh.  The upper five residential floor levels are structured with engineered wood framing, supported on a concrete and steel podium level at the second floor level.  Difficult, sloped site conditions presented significant foundation design challenges and required the integration of numerous retaining walls into the building design.
