Keystone Commons Community and History

Westinghouse plant which now houses over 40 companies

RIDC bought the former Westinghouse Electric Corporation’s East Pittsburgh/Turtle Creek complex with the goal of redeveloping it into a world class, multi-use, urban industrial facility. Renamed the Keystone Commons, RIDC rehabilitated several of its original buildings which now house over 40 companies and employ about 1,100 people. The site features 2.25 million square feet of industrial, warehouse, manufacturing and office space.

In 2022, Eos Energy Enterprises, a clean energy storage company, announced a record-breaking order and signed a 5-year lease at Keystone Commons for 60,765 square-feet of space in the North Building and 46,582 square-feet of space in the S Shop, which comprises the building’s entire first floor.

Also that year, Exo-Surfaces, a provider of engineered building facades, signed a 3-year lease for 4,513 square feet in the West Shop.

Other Keystone Commons tenants include Conicity Technologies, FourGrowers, Action Nutrition, Geotechnics, Apple Cookie Baking Company, and a local ambulance and transportation service.

The West Shop Industrial Mall has been a long-time growth space for manufacturing, technology, and professional services firms that require flexible space with amenities like an indoor parking lot, fitness center and easy access to public transportation routes on Braddock Avenue.  Flexible terms and affordable rents attract companies of all industries to Keystone Commons.

Other massive buildings in the complex house large footprint companies including Holtec International and TAKTL.
