Environmental Focus

Helm on the Allegheny, in the heart of Pittsburgh's Strip District, was meticulously designed and constructed with a dual focus on our residents and the environment. We take pride in our achievement of LEED® Gold, demonstrating our commitment to sustainable apartments. Additionally, our dedication to the well-being of our residents and the environment lead to us receiving the WELL Health-Safety Rating in 2021.

These two internationally recognized sustainability accolades underscore our commitment to providing healthy, safe, and eco-friendly apartment living in the vibrant Strip District.


LEED® Gold

LEED® Gold certification signifies attention paid to the apartment building and construction process’ effect on the ecology and environment. You’ll notice plumbing and lighting fixtures designed to use 30 percent or less water and electricity than standard products. We’re also a 100 percent non-smoking facility. What you can’t see, is the remediation of a former brownfield, a white roof to reduce the heat island effect found in urban areas, and rainwater mitigation to keep runoff from our neighbor, the Allegheny River.

WELL Health Safety Rated

The WELL Health - Safety rating provides you the peace of mind that the building is managed in a healthy and safe way. The COVID-19 pandemic moved the WELL Building Institute to develop a program to designate those building operators who are aware of and have effective measures in place to prevent microbial spread, maximize the use of fresh outdoor air circulation, as well as use cleaning and disinfecting products that are safe for all who come in contact with them. These two programs combine to ensure Helm on the Allegheny is a safe and healthy place for anyone to call home for years to come.
