A longtime family-owned Whitehall Borough apartment complex was sold for $11.75 million to a New York-based company, records show.

The Maiden Bridge and Canongate apartments, located off Weyman Road in Whitehall, were sold at the end of last month by members of the Caste family — included under the name Maiden Bridge LP — to Pittsford, New York-based Morgan Communities, under the name Morgan Maiden Bridge LLC.

Representatives from Morgan Communities and Caste Commercial Real Estate did not return multiple calls seeking comment.

A deed recorded in the Allegheny County Department of Real Estate shows the property sale was finalized on Dec. 27. Four parcels of land were sold, including the Maiden Bridge and Canongate apartments and vacant land on Lawnview Drive in Whitehall, documents show.

Longtime owners of the complex included the Maiden Bridge Limited Partnership, formed in 1972 under the name Brightview Joint Venture. Others listed on the deed included the Estate of Mary Danielson, the Estate of Philomena Teodori and members of the Caste family.

The Caste family owns and manages the Caste Village Shopping Center and other properties in the area.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
