A three-story building at 5135 Fifth Ave., Shadyside, vacant and considered a neighborhood eyesore, will have to wait a bit longer if developers are to renovate it into office space.

Before the potential developers, Robert Dauer and William Kane, can convert the structure into an 18,000-square-foot office with parking beneath it, they expect to meet with neighbors to work out concerns over the shape of the building, including a proposed patio.

The Shadyside Action Coalition proposed the session Thursday during a meeting at Winchester-Thurston School.

Besides the patio, the other major concern by one next-door neighbor was the installation of a cantilever extending from the second and third levels at the front of the building, which the neighbor said could infringe on her home.

Architect Iliya Jordanoff from Ed Pope Architecture said following previous meetings with neighbors that the developers, who have an option on the building, reduced the proposed size of the office from 22,000 square feet and made other adjustments.
