Colliers International | Pittsburgh is proud to announce the lease of 220 North Highland Avenue in East Liberty to the locally owned Union Pig and Chicken restaurant. The retail space, which presently features a 48-seat restaurant with a fully equipped kitchen, will immediately undergo construction renovations for a new and innovative restaurant space. Construction is expected to be complete before the end of 1st Quarter 2012.
Gregg Broujos, Managing Director, and Anthony Pantoni, Associate, at Colliers International | Pittsburgh, represented the 2,200 SF retail space for The Wedgwood Group and assisted Kevin Sousa, owner of Union Pig and Chicken, with securing the space for its business.
Kevin Sousa is the 2011 Pittsburgh Magazine Chef of the year, and is chef and co-owner of Salt of the Earth, located on Penn Avenue, which has been credited by Pittsburgh Magazine as the 2011 Best New Restaurant and Delicious Design. He is a native Pittsburgher, and has been featured nationally in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Food & Wine magazine. Salt of the Earth was anxiously awaited, and Union Pig and Chicken, Sousa’s newest venture, is expected to receive the same buzz. Additionally, the restaurant is expected to bring an unbelievable amount of attention to
North Highland Avenue in East Liberty.
