Ollie at Baumhaus is Pittsburgh’s first luxury co-living community located in the Friendship neighborhood. The seven-story, 127-unit development includes 31 micro-studios and shared suites, as well as a mix of traditional one, two and three bedroom units.
Trans Associates performed a Transportation Impact Study to determine the traffic impacts and parking needs for the development. The study met the requirements as set forth by the City of Pittsburgh. Data collection and analysis was performed and included volumes for cars, trucks, pedestrians and bicycles.
Pedestrian recommendations included the installation of new traffic signal equipment including audible pedestrian warning, pedestrian push-button and countdown equipment for two adjacent intersections.
Parking and loading were evaluated. The final report included a recommendation to add more than 40 bicycle parking spaces.
