Pittsburgh Athletic Association | Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania | c. 1909
•
The Pittsburgh Athletic Association was a private social club and athletic club in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. Its clubhouse, located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Bigelow Boulevard in the city's Oakland district, faces three other landmark buildings. This is one of the last photos taken inside before it’s current renovation
•
The club was organized in 1908 by real estate developer Franklin Nicola. He commissioned architect Benno Janssen who used a Venetian Renaissance palace as a prototype for his design and the clubhouse was completed in 1911
•
The association was a nonprofit membership club which offered comprehensive athletic facilities, sports lessons, spa services, fine dining, and overnight accommodations. Some of the building's more interesting features include a pool on the third floor, full basketball and squash courts, a 16 lane bowling alley, and a room dedicated to former University of Pittsburgh football coach Johnny Majors
•
The 110-year-old club at one time had 2,500 members, including names like Heinz, Mellon, and even avid swimmer Fred Rogers who swam many laps in the 3rd-floor pool. However in recent years, management contended with the aging facility, membership dropped below 200 individuals, and declining revenue brought the club to declare bankruptcy in 2017
•
Later that year, the building was purchased by a real estate developer who plans to renovate the iconic clubhouse and restore many of its period details including the current lobby’s stone walls, fireplaces, and coffered ceilings. The current plan is to create offices on the upper floors, space for three restaurants and a cafe on the main level - there will be space allotted for the reorganized PAA as well
