2 new Oakland hotels planned

Plans to build two hotels in Oakland were approved this week by the City of Pittsburgh Planning Commission.

In a Sept. 1 meeting, the commission approved construction of a Hotel Indigo at the Pittsburgh Technology Center in South Oakland and a 10-story Residence Inn Marriott Hotel on Forbes Avenue near Halket Street.

The $14.7 million Hotel Indigo project, below, would commence construction in February 2016 with occupancy a year later. Planning documents show the six-story building will include 108 rooms, meeting space and a restaurant.

The Pittsburgh Technology Center, located off Second Avenue, is home to multiple University departments in the Bridgeside Point I and II buildings.

The Residence Inn Marriott Hotel would be built at 3339 Forbes Ave., next to the SkyVue apartment development under construction on the former site of the Allegheny County Health Department. The planned opening would be in December 2016.

The $18 million, 10-story hotel would include 144 guest rooms, a pool and fitness room. Planning documents indicate developers will seek LEED Silver certification for the project.
