Pittsburgh’s scenic Mt. Washington neighborhood will hopefully be transformed by a huge redevelopment project at the corner of Grandview Avenue and Wyoming Street. Demolition of the long vacant Edge Restaurant property will begin on March 14th. The demolition phase should take four to six weeks.
Once the site is cleared, developer Beau Beemsterboer stated it will take between six and ten months to get full financing and start construction. Beemsterboer feels confident in his ability to get the necessary funding.
The proposed development includes a 20 story hotel, two restaurants, a spa, 55 condominiums and large parking garage. A hotel chain has not been selected at this time; however, many chains have expressed interest in the site.
The spectacular view of downtown Pittsburgh from Mount Washington, (where the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers form the Ohio River) is a world-class location and immensely popular with tourists visiting the city. Pittsburgh is consistently ranked one of America’s most beautiful and livable cities.
