Cleveland Construction, Inc. is the Construction Manager for the historic restoration and adaptive reuse of the Icon on Smithfield building located at 441 Smithfield Street in the central downtown historic district of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Originally built in 1918, this 7-story, 286,000 square-foot building formerly housed the Frank & Seder department store until 1954 and most recently held offices until the building was vacated in 2011. The historic building is being renovated to serve a new purpose as a mixed-use facility with 40 apartment units on the upper levels, 160,000 square-feet of office space, 60,000 square-feet retail space spread over the first two floors, and underground parking. The building was placed on the National Register in 2013.
During the renovation, the building will undergo extensive demolition. The building envelope will receive cosmetic restoration of the terra cotta, limestone, and brick exterior. All the windows will be completely replaced to match the buildings original style. The existing 7th-floor exterior walls will be removed to create an outdoor space for the residential units. The roof will be replaced, new fire suppression and new elevators will be installed throughout. Upgrades for future tenant fit-out in retail and office spaces will be done. Sub-basement building service will include new and upgraded mechanical, electrical and plumbing throughout the building.
Cleveland Construction, Inc. is collaborating with architect DLR Group/Westlake Reed Leskosky on this renovation project, which is slated for completion in early 2020.
