Zenith Landscape Design
The thoughtful master plan takes advantage of orientation and landscape to create a unique campus environment
Southpointe II, a 117-acre master planned mixed use development, will become home to three new office buildings for Burns & Scalo Real Estate Services. The project consists of three five-story buildings clad in brick masonry and metal cornice accents. Building 1 is 183, 000 square feet and will be a build-to-suite project for ANSYS, an engineering simulation software company. Building 2 and 3 are each 151, 000 square foot speculative office buildings.
The thoughtful master plan provides a campus like setting through building sitting, landscape design, and pedestrian links between the buildings. Taking full advantage of the location, the building’s configuration, orientation and the fenestration optimizes views for its tenants to the surrounding Pittsburgh hillside. In addition, the buildings are uniquely positioned to enhance their presence from the I-79 corridor to the south.
The sustainable building design meets LEED Core & Shell Certified level. The highly efficient floor plates are designed to work with multi-tenant configurations and offer column-free exterior walls. Building vertical circulation is arranged at the center core of the plan providing uninterrupted exterior perimeter walls with floor to ceiling glass.
