Historical Background

Developed and owned by Pittsburgh-based Jenkins-Empire Associates, Fifth Avenue Place opened in early 1988 as the final development project of Pittsburgh's Renaissance II.

The 31-story tower consists of 29 floors of office space rising above two levels of retail shops and a three-level underground garage.

This multi-use complex was conceived and designed by the Stubbins Associates of Cambridge, Massachusetts. Final design of the office/retail structure was done in conjunction with the locally based architectural firm Williams Trebilcock Whitehead.

The building's retail area, referred to as the Fifth Avenue Place Arcade Shops, was co-developed by Williams Jackson Ewing and designed by D.I. Design & Development Consultants, both of Baltimore, Maryland.

Fifth Avenue Place buildingPittsburgh based Mellon Stuart Company was the general contractor for the three-year construction process. Fifth Avenue Place was constructed upon the former site of the Jenkins-Arcade, Pittsburgh's first enclosed indoor mall.

Jenkins-Empire Associates handles both the office and retail leasing functions for the complex while daily property management activities are carried out under the on-site supervision of Oxford Development Company.
