Healthcare and Tech Development Intersect in Pittsburgh

Much of the third quarter’s leasing activity comes from the robotics and technology industry in Pittsburgh.

Along with the technology industry, healthcare is also driving development in Pittsburgh. The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) was selected this year for the state’s Community HealthChoices managed care program, which means the medical center may be in need of more office space.

Similarly, the University of Pittsburgh also received funding from the National Institute of Health (NIH), putting R&D expenses at roughly $861 million. With access to talent from both universities and plenty of development in the pipeline, Pittsburgh is well positioned for future growth in the life sciences industry.
