Georgia developer to present 389-apartment 'Skyvue' before Pittsburgh Planning Commission

Sep 8, 2014, 10:49am EDT

The Georgia-based developer of the largest new apartment project Oakland has seen in decades is ready to present a design and a name to the Pittsburgh Planning Commission.

According to the agenda of the Pittsburgh Planning Commission, an affiliate of Valdosta, Ga.-based Ambling University Development Group, plans to call its new 389-unit apartment building Skyvue.

The project is proposed to replace the former Allegheny County Health Department building at 3333 Forbes Ave. and a few smaller neighboring properties near the heart of Oakland.

A rendering of the design for the project by the architecture firm of Niles Bolten Associates shows a structure featuring street-level retail and below-grade parking that maxes out much of the plot on which it’s expected to be built. The overall project is expected to be 14 levels, including 358 parking spaces in a development expected to total more than 400,000 square feet.

The design features two apartment towers built onto a larger base, with a rooftop deck and interior courtyard within the U-shaped structure.
