Somehow I got invited to an actual press conference. I mean, there was free food, drinks, Mayor Peduto, the Pittsburgh Business Times, Post-Gazette and TV cameras. I pinched myself and then proceeded to eat as many of the little finger sandwiches and snacks that I could shove in.
At some point, I made a little video with Elle Walters, Marketing Director of Faros Properties
Check it aht! We tried to get her to commit to Guys and Yia-Yia’s for all renters.
Faros bought Washington Plaza (2012) and the Allegheny Center apartments earlier this year. Now they’re making in late big upgrades to both properties and re-naming them. No feedback yet on YaJagoff getting some kind of naming rights!
Some studio apartments on the North Side facility are expected to rent for $625 per month. Who’s in???
Why are they doing this?
“People are migrating here because it’s such a great standard of living. We feel the demographics are getting younger.”
Thanks to the gang at Markowitz Communications for the invite.
I might get invited to another one because, for the first time at a public event, I didn’t drop any food on the floor.
