Hot Property is an occasional piece in NEXTpittsburgh featuring a distinctive residence for sale in our region.  

78 Waterfront Drive 

Island living in the city?  This premiere end-unit townhouse on Washington’s Landing offers both river and channel views as well as exceptional Downtown vistas from its location on the south end of the island.

A double unit, the very spacious townhouse features 3 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, an elevator, two decks, workout room and knockout views from various perspectives throughout the four floors.

And the setting? Most people know Washington’s Landing from visiting the boathouse where the area crew teams practice and compete, or from the riverfront bike trail which winds through the 44-acre tract (formerly known as Herr’s Island). Developed in 2000 from a brownfield, the island now consists of 88 townhouses of various size and price, a full marina, and the popular Redfin Blues restaurant with its deck over the Allegheny. On the north end of the island are commercial buildings—home to Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, for one—along with city tennis courts and open green space.

Asking price: $1.45 million. Find out more here.
