Shadyside developer Schreiber Real Estate is planning a 59-unit apartment building in the Strip District at Smallman and 11th streets.

In a presentation on Tuesday to the Pittsburgh Planning Commission, Front Studio Architects' Art Lubetz said 44 apartments would be one-bedroom units, and 15 would have two bedrooms. All but 10 would provide views of the Allegheny River.

The apartments would be built on top of an existing one-story commercial building across 11th Street from the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. The six-story building will be largely white and gold with colorful glass enclosures off a black elevator tower. Construction cost is about $7.5 million; work would begin early next year.
