Local development company Mosites Co. is planning a summer construction start for Eastside III, a mixed-use, three-building complex in the city’s East Liberty neighborhood.

According to the Pittsburgh Business Times, the project would bring a total of 360 apartments and 40,000 square feet of retail space on a four-acre site that extends from Highland to Penn Avenue. Plans also call for a public boulevard, rooftop gardens and energy-efficient appliances inside the residences.

The project is scheduled to receive a vote from the Pittsburgh Planning Commission in the next few weeks. If approved, construction on the first building, which would include 109 apartments, could begin in August and last for about a year.

The new development will be part of the new multi-modal East Liberty Transit Center, which is expected to serve nearly 1,000 daily bus trips. Upon completion, the project will also feature a parking structure for more than 500 vehicles.

The company’s other phases of the East Side master planned development brought major national tenants to the neighborhood, including Whole Foods and most recently, a Target store.
