48th Street Row Homes




48th Street Row Homes

Originally constructed in 1872, the five 48th Street Row Homes became vacant in what was then a crime-ridden part of Lawrenceville, nearly two decades ago. Botero Development partnered with Lawrenceville Corporation to purchase and salvage the properties, which in turn has further encouraged new development in the vicinity.

The idea for a private courtyard on the corner of 48th and Hatfield was conceived when Botero found that the building located there, formerly a beer distributor, was beyond repair. The brick walls of the third wall were collapsing, and to compound these unsafe conditions, the joist structures for all of the floors fell down to the basement. The building was shelled and stabilized, resulting in a beautifully designed outdoor space that maintains the historic presence of the corner.

All five were pre-sold as customizable homes. Each customer worked directly with the MossArchitects and Botero to take the vision each customer had and apply that to each home. Although all five units started the same, each home resulted in a completely different look and feel matching the customer's personalities. The development was selected as the 2nd Best Renovation of 2013 by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette & Community Design Center.
