Fairmont to Manage New Pittsburgh Hotel

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts will manage a new 185-room Pittsburgh hotel, which is expected to open in summer 2009, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The hotel will sit atop the 23-story Three PNC Plaza, a 780,000-square-foot, office-residential-parking complex currently under construction along Fifth Avenue. The hotel rooms will fill portions of the top 10 floors, providing unobstructed views of PNC Park, while the lobby and entrance will sit on the first floor, near Liberty Avenue and Fifth. Twenty-eight condos, called The Residences at The Fairmont, also will take portions of the upper floors, separated from the hotel by different elevator lobbies. A 6,000-square-foot hotel ballroom will overlook Fifth, on the second floor, its glass windows visible to the street below. Pittsburgh currently has a Renaissance hotel.
