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.
New RIDC tenant Conicity Technologies signed a 5-year lease for 2,650 square feet of space in the West Shop Industrial Mall, which is 30% larger than their former space. Local robotics start-up FourGrowers signed a lease in 2019 for 5,000 square feet of warehouse and office space for product development. Other West Shop tenants include 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.
