The Metropolitan Shadyside, Pittsburgh

The new 42-unit luxury condominium project features more than 10,000 square feet (929 m2) of Citadel Architectural Products Inc.’s metal composite material panels in two installation systems. The distinctive six-story building was crafted to meet the specific needs of high-end condominium buyers. The panels, finished in Clear Anodized, were Citadel’s Envelope 2000 Rout and Return System and Reveal System.

“It’s somewhat unusual to see a job that uses more than one Citadel system,” said John Hyde, project manager with East Coast Metal Systems, fabricator of Citadel’s Rout and Return panels. “It was an effective use of the two systems. The Rout and Return panels were used for column covers, beam wraps and the tall cornices at the top of the building. The RV [reveal] System was used on the long wall applications and the balcony step backs. It’s an upscale residential complex that turned out gorgeous.”
