4721 Fifth Avenue-Campus Design and Facility Development - Carnegie Mellon University

Project Overview

The 4721 Fifth Avenue Renovation is designed to create a hub for the University's marketing and communications department that encourages collaboration, innovation and creativity. The 4721 building was originally built in 1912 as the Winchester School for Girls. The University will restore the historic exterior while providing a modern office environment that includes offices, conference rooms, photography and video studios as well as collaborative and contemplative work areas.

The building renovations will achieve a LEED Gold Rating. The development of the site will create a path from the student residential area on Clyde Street to campus and incorporate a parking lot for University use. A water conservation system incorporated in the site will prevent 5,760 gallons of runoff from entering the City of Pittsburgh Storm Water System each year.

The 4721 Fifth Avenue Renovation is scheduled to be completed in the Summer of 2017.
