420 Boulevard of the Allies involved extensive renovations to the 157,290 square foot core and shell to re-purpose the building from the former Art Institute of Pittsburgh to a commercial office use.

This project won the 2018 Pittsburgh NIAOP award for office renovations. M&J Wilkow opted to to return it to its past use as a traditional office building, by taking advantage of a classic building’s appealing architecture and outfitting it with current finishes and amenities such as a fitness center, bike storage and showers, kitchens and ample common areas, a rooftop deck.

Shannon Construction was able to ensure all aspects of the building were renovated from MEPs to finishes which resulted in a quick purchase of the property by the city of Pittsburgh to expand their offices.
