Carnegie Mellon Purchases Pittsburgh Community
- Nov 21, 2018
Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) has acquired Fifth Neville, a 78-unit apartment community in Pittsburgh, for $17 million from a private investor, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The new owner has plans to invest in capital improvements, repositioning the asset to meet the university’s student housing demand.
Located at 4705 Fifth Ave., the community is positioned half a mile north of CMU’s campus. The Centre Avenue retail corridor is situated north of the property, providing a wide range of shopping and dining options. The area is served by a number of public transportation routes, directly linking the asset to downtown Pittsburgh.
The seven-story building contains a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom units, with floorplans ranging from 308 to 835 square feet. On-site amenities include a business center, laundry facilities and off-street parking.
In May, 2 miles to the west near Duquesne University, a campus residence hall changed hands for $23 million.
