In 2005, entrepreneurs and preservationists Richard Pearson, Mary Del Brady and Jennifer Pendleton began a multi-year effort to purchase and develop the Mansions with a commitment to restoring the elegant property to its original grandeur.
As a result of the historic significance of the Mansions, the restoration garnered tremendous community support from the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation and the City of Pittsburgh, among others.
Viewed as a testament to the craftsmen and artisans who built Pittsburgh, the Mansions were restored consistent with Secretary of Interior standards, and have been approved for listing with the National Register of Historic Places. Original room configurations and finishes have been preserved while the premises have been upgraded with state-of-the art mechanical, electrical and communications systems.
