$160M mixed-use development planned for 305-acre brownfield in S. Fayette

Pop City (Pittsburgh, PA)
March 5, 2008

Newbury Market, a $160 million mixed-use brownfield redevelopment 
planned for S. Fayette Twp., has received $5 million from Pennsylvania's 
Department of Community and Economic Development. The state investment 
will come in the form of a grant of $500,000 per year for 10 years to 
the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County on behalf of developer 
EQA Landmark Communities.

Located off of I-79 and Rte. 50,  the 305-acre project will convert the 
former Koppers plant site into a mixed-use development that will feature 
a 125-room hotel, just under one million feet of retail and commercial 
space, 215 homes, and 125 rental units. Homes, which will sell for 
between $200,000 and $650,000, will range in size from 2,000 to 6,000 
square feet. The project may include a LEED-certified office building. 
Home construction will begin during the fall of 2008. Project architect 
is Burt Hill.

"I don't know another project in the suburbs that endeavors to be a 
truly mixed-use walkable community. We've come up with a vernacular and 
architectural guidelines that drive the design," says Brett Malky, with 
EQA Landmark Communities. "Our residential piece combines traditional 
neighborhood design, formal green space and a mix of housing types 
borrowing from the great architectural traditions of the South Hills."
