2501 Smallman St. – The Offices at 3 Crossings


3 Crossings is an emerging 20-acre, mixed-use development in Pittsburgh‘s historic Strip District. Located on the Allegheny riverfront, the Strip is one of Pittsburgh’s most vibrant neighborhoods, combining industrial development and wholesaling with opportunities to eat, shop and live in an internationally-influenced community.

2501 Smallman is the first completed project at The Offices at 3 Crossings. The Offices provide an Urban Flex work environment with efficient, exposed and flexible office space that encourages collaboration and creativity. A cluster of technology and design firms already call this area home.

2501 Smallman Street offers 52,000 square feet of office space that merges suburban efficiency and adaptability with urban design and quality, including exposed ceilings, minimal common area and abundant natural daylighting. Designed to Leed Silver standards, the flexible space can accommodate various users and operations, including general office, R&D, technology and product assembly.*


The winning specialty contractor, AC Dellovade, knew they could rely on Fabral value and timely delivery of the 20,000 square feet needed to complete the job. On the façade, an economical and versatile Ultra Rib exposed fastener wall and roof panel system provides a traditional, yet contemporary feel that speaks to both the history and evolution of the area. This durable 1½” high panel is well-suited for commercial and industrial applications.

Serving as an industry standard, heavy-duty Pewter 4“ Rib panels are ideal for intense industrial and lagging applications. Here, the panel system provides textural and tonal contrast on the building’s remaining area while also providing Energy Star® listed benefits. Pewter, a standard Fabral Mica color, contains solar reflective properties that reduce the amount of heat absorbed by the structure.

Complementary Pewter Select Series 12 was used for the building’s soffit. With a concealed fastener attachment, this flush panel design is suited for long, multiple span walls, equipment screens, fascia and soffit applications.
