PITTSBURGH, PA – Burns Scalo Real Estate reports that it has inked more than 115,000 square feet in transactions during the third quarter of 2021. With 19 leasing transactions – including new leases, renewals, and expansions – over the past quarter, Burns Scalo Real Estate continues to see steady interest from prospective tenants.
The strong performance in Q3 was driven in part by a flurry of new activity. Heavy leasing volume plus a pandemic-fueled flight to brand new spaces, combined with limited new luxury inventory, are major factors driving prices upward.
“Real” tenants recognize the flight to quality and newer real estate will be the necessity to welcome employees back to work,” James Scalo, CEO of Burns Scalo Real Estate stated. “All of the senior executives I have been speaking with are anxious to bring their people back to a controlled workplace, and they recognize they must create environments employees WANT to return to.”

In July, the activity is the 17,000 SF expansion of BlueSphere Bio – a UPMC Enterprises spin out specializing in rapid, personalized T-cell Therapies for Cancer – at Burns Scalo’s Riviera, Pittsburgh’s only luxury life-sciences building.
