Participants will tour two schools that have been adapted for residential use––Fifth Avenue School Lofts and Miller School Lofts––and visit LGA Partners LP, a full-service architectural design firm located in a handsome historic building. Along the way, we’ll see wonderful views toward downtown Pittsburgh and many newly constructed residential developments next to traditional, historic homes. Things are looking up for Uptown.
