A New Look at 51 Bridge Street

Dating  back to 1902 during the prime of Pittsburgh’s steel production, 51 Bridge Street was one of many locations in Pittsburgh that contributed to over half of our nation’s steel supply. After years of history, hammers, and hard work, The AM Group has taken the reins and plans to redevelop this site into one that pushes the bounds of technology and forward progress with its Tech Flex space.  

Now making another splash at 51 Bridge Street in Etna, The AM Group is altering the current site into one focused on manufacturing new technology and developing robotics. A celebration with neighbors kicked off the excitement of the renovation. Here’s Etna, YaJagoff!
