Vice President, Director of Residential Property Management
As a licensed real estate broker with over 35 years of residential real estate management experience, Ann Paul oversees the management and operation of The Rubinoff Company’s residential portfolio, including 151 First Side Condominium Association, The Residences at Piatt Place, Summerset at Frick Park Neighborhood Association and Crescent Court Condominium Association.
Prior to joining The Rubinoff Company, Ann was the Marketing Director for Community Builders with responsibility for projects in Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Cincinnati. Prior to that, she was an Operations Manager with WeDo Property Management, Inc. and Vice President at Franklin West, Inc.
A life director and past president of the Apartment Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh, past president of the Carlow University Alumni Association and board member of the Western Pennsylvania Family Center, Ann remains active in the community. She is a resident of Squirrel Hill where she raised her family and continues to make her home.
Summerset at Frick Park
Building upon our legacy of innovative development, Summerset at Frick Park is one of the nation’s first and largest brownfields transformed for residential use. This 238-acre former industrial site has been reclaimed as a beautiful new urban residential development with the feel of a traditional Pittsburgh neighborhood.
Working with the Urban Redevelopment Authority, our partnership facilitated the redevelopment of the site to enable building of the most significant new residential development in the City of Pittsburgh since World War II. Our investment in the project was instrumental in creating public open space, including a 100-acre extension of Frick Park, as well as the restoration of Nine Mile Run. In addition, the development has leveraged federal and local government investment in infrastructure and environmental cleanup, ensuring that the area is ideal for living and recreation.
Summerset at Frick Park marks the completion of the second phase of the site. Located just minutes from downtown Pittsburgh, Summerset at Frick Park features energy efficient homes in a walkable, close-knit traditional neighborhood. With quality construction and pedestrian friendly sustainable design, the beautiful urban streetscape is enhanced by numerous parklets and adjacency to Pittsburgh’s treasured Frick Park trails, parks and river views. Ample open green space and convenient retail access complement this highly desirable development.
Washington’s Landing, formerly known as Herr’s Island, is a 42-acre island on the western banks of the Allegheny River located approximately two miles from Pittsburgh’s Central Business District. It is one of the area’s first mixed-use riverfront developments. The reclamation of this brownfield site has been a model for urban redevelopment both regionally and nationally. The site encompasses office space, space for research, development and light assembly; a full service marina, luxury townhomes, a rowing and health club; public parks, tennis courts and a jogging trail.
On Washington’s Landing, we partnered with the Urban Redevelopment Authority of the City of Pittsburgh, as well as other community stakeholders, to transform an industrial island into one of the region’s most desirable locations to live, work and play. Washington’s Landing is just one example of our many public/private partnerships and brownfield redevelopment projects for which our dedicated team has become known.
Alcoa Business Services Center
Attracting and maintaining a talented and sophisticated work force will continue to transform the Pittsburgh region. We recognize the significance of creating attractive and efficient workplaces where teamwork and innovation will thrive. Measuring approximately 228,000 s.f. of Class A office space, the Alcoa Business Services Center surpassed client expectations and was completed on schedule and within budget.
Alcoa, Inc. selected Rubinoff through a national competitive bidding process to build the Alcoa Business Services Center. The office building was designed with Alcoa’s input to reflect its culture and accommodate its business services operations. The Center features employee-focused layouts with abundant natural light and open floor plans. The building is conveniently located in close proximity to Alcoa’s headquarters building on Pittsburgh’s North Shore.
Uber Advanced Technology Center
Located on a site formerly used for the manufacture of electric arc furnaces, the 32nd Street Business Center is another example of the transformation of a reclaimed brownfield site into productive commercial real estate. In 2000, we developed a two-building warehouse and distribution facility. In 2015, we worked with Uber Advanced Technologies Center to transform one of the buildings into Uber’s new riverfront home for the development and advancement of driverless cars. The development is ideally located on the river and at the intersection of the evolving Strip District and Lawrenceville, and perfectly situated for adaptation for Pittsburgh’s new technology workforce.
51st Street Business Center
We’re proud of our history as a leader in transforming properties by developing “flex” parks in the Pittsburgh area. Our flex business parks accommodate offices, R&D centers, distribution, assembly, manufacturing and warehouse uses, and retail. The 51st Street Business Center is located in Lawrenceville, minutes from Pittsburgh’s Strip District and main highway Route 28.
Working with Goodwill of Southwestern PA, we transformed the 51st Street site into offices for Goodwill’s Regional Headquarters, its Workforce Development program and one of the organization’s retail outlets. The headquarters building features a two-story light-filled atrium. It houses the agency’s services and programs, including critical employment training, job search assistance, adult education, computer recycling and the Good-to-Go Café.
