Pittsburgh Magazine’s 6th annual, Ultimate House – Lawerencevill Lofts – will be ready for public tours beginning January 14, 2022. The 24-unit luxury condominium, a project by E Properties and Development, is in the final phases of construction on Butler Street. From January 14-23, Pittsburghers will have an opportunity to tour three fully furnished and stunning penthouse units in the heart of Lawrenceville. Tickets can be purchased online with all proceeds benefiting UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Free Care Fund

Public tours of Lawrenceville Lofts were originally set for this fall but had to be postponed due to construction delays.

“Supply issues and a tight labor market are impacting construction projects everywhere,” said Betsy Benson, Pittsburgh Magazine Vice President and Publisher. “We need a little more time to make sure this is truly an ultimate experience for our guests.”

About the Ultimate House

Since 2015, Pittsburgh Magazine has raised money for the UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Free Care Fund through the Ultimate House.

Each year, Pittsburgh Magazine combs the region in search of cutting-edge, high-end construction projects that represent the “ultimate” in residential living at that moment in time. In past years, the magazine honored homes in Bloomfield, the Strip District, Cranberry and Pine Township with this designation. The best Pittsburgh brands and businesses contributing to the project are highlighted in the months leading up to public tours of the Ultimate House. Once the home is completed, it is beautifully staged and opened to the public for tours, with all ticket proceeds benefiting UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Free Care Fund. Pittsburgh Magazine’s Ultimate Houses has raised more than $330,000 for the Free Care Fund since its inception.

For the grand finale of the Ultimate House project, Pittsburgh Magazine publishes a special section featuring a room-by-room photo essay that serves as a  sponsor resource guide for readers.
