TEDCO was selected to construct this historic renovation of the former GC Murphy Building in Market Square Place, the retail center of downtown Pittsburgh. What was once 7 unused buildings falling into disrepair is now a functional 150,000 square foot single space with 46 residences, retail storefronts, and a YMCA.

The largest difficulty in this $21,000,000 project was connecting the buildings. When working with multiple construction types, code requirements needing rectified increase. The knitting together was a success, and the outside was restored to the facade it had in the 1930s.

A Green Building Alliance LEED Green building, Market Square Place retained 93% of the original building envelope, and 87% of the original structure.
