Development of new office product, particularly at the scale and size of Bakery Square, is very difficult to achieve in the dense urban fabric of Pittsburgh. As part of the acquisition, Lionstone controls the last office development parcel in Bakery Square to capture future demand. This parcel is adjacent to the newer Bakery Square 2.0 office building, and is entitled/designed for a twin structure totaling approximately 211,000 SF. This additional development parcel adds upside through higher-yielding development, as well as providing an important expansion option for major tenants as they continue to grow.
