Looking for an apartment in Greensburg? There’s space above the Palace Theatre
Spacious rooms? Check.

Brand new appliances? Hooked up and ready to go.
A reserved parking space? Two blocks away.
The Westmoreland Cultural Trust’s open house Sunday in newly finished, third-floor apartments above the Palace Theatre in Greensburg showed off those amenities and more. Three apartments at the 92-year-old building were available on the third floor and one on the second floor.
Trust chief executive officer April Kopas said the renovation project, which started nine years ago, is a way for the organization to be supportive of other efforts aimed at bringing people downtown.
“We’re excited to contribute to living in the downtown cultural district,” she said.
All the units have the same decor scheme — soft, gray carpet and walls painted a light neutral with dark trim. Each has a sleek, modern kitchen with dark cabinets and stainless steel appliances. The bathrooms have a similar motif, and closet space is bountiful.
So far, the spaces have attracted potential tenants in a wide age range.
“It’s been all generations and all different kind of families that have been interested,” Kopas said.
The renovations included four units on each floor.
The second-floor apartments were opened in 2018.
There are two one-bedroom units, five two-bedroom apartments and one three-bedroom space. Four of the units — three on the second floor and one on the third floor — are occupied.
Utilities are included in monthly rent, which ranges from $1,025 to $1,825 for units that were available Sunday. There was barely any noise from traffic in the three-bedroom unit that faces the Westmoreland County Courthouse and West Otterman Street.
“They did this right,” Kopas said.
But that also means no noise from performers onstage.
“Ted Nugent is not going to resonate up here,” she told two people checking out apartments.
The apartment rentals are intended as a revenue support for the Palace Theatre, which is operated by the Trust. The cost for completing the third-floor apartments was expected to be about $750,000.
