In 2009, Koning Eizenberg Architecture completed the transformation of the 104-year-old Century Building in Pittsburgh’s downtown cultural district, converting the 12-story commercial office building into 60 residential units with retail and office space on the lower floors. The LEED Gold–certified building offers some of the first mixed-income housing in the city’s downtown; the affordable and market-rate units are indistinguishable, and residents have access to a fitness room, lounge areas, and a roof deck with views of the Allegheny River. The exterior of the building is embellished with a loud, lime-green billboard stamped with a bike icon that advertises storage units attached to the building that are available to tenants and cycling commuters.
