Vacant Upper Floors

In 2004 Eve and her team created the Vacant Upper Floor (VUF) guide. Commissioned by Pittsburgh’s Downtown Living Initiative, its purpose was to encourage residential development of downtown buildings with vacant upper floors. She pulled together a team of architects, developers, contractors, code officials and financing experts and tackled 5 buildings. The VUF guide shows how these buildings might be developed. As a result of this work funding was made available to developers tackling such projects.
