A set of new townhomes in the West End will boast one of the best views in the city, adjacent to the West End Overlook park in the Elliott neighborhood.
A project of Sierra Development, LLC, The Overlook at West End Pointe
will consist of four, 3,800 square-foot townhomes. Each unit will be five stories, including a rooftop observation terrace, and a two-car garage, with four bedrooms and three full and two partial baths. The homes are listed at $890,000.
While the façade will feature Craftsman-style details, the rear will be more contemporary with large glass windows that allow the namesake view to be visible from all floors.
The view is directly at The Point and downtown skyline, offering a panoramic of the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio Rivers. A rear lawn will be created adjacent to the existing overlook park.
According to Howard Slaughter of Sierra Development, the project has recently received all approvals from the City and West End community groups, and construction is scheduled to begin this coming spring.
“Without the community’s support, and without Councilwoman Theresa Kail-Smith’s support, we would not be able to move forward,” he says. Slaughter hopes that the development will be an impetus for more opportunities to strengthen the community.
The City of Pittsburgh is offering at ten year tax abatement to potential home buyers. Additionally, the developers are offering a $50,000 deduction to a buyer who signs before February 9th
Offered as a third incentive, a buyer will also have access to an interior designer so that each unit will be custom designed.
