Highland Towers to Be Featured at Pittsburgh Filmmakers Art Show

Highland Towers is a national historic landmark that recently celebrated its 100th anniversary. Located at 340-342 S. Highland Avenue, it contains 36 one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments.

The towers are situated near University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) area hospitals and are just a few blocks from the retail shops and restaurants on Walnut Street, South Highland Avenue and Ellsworth Avenue. This residence allows quick, convenient access to the best that Pittsburgh has to offer.

Franklin West has been the steward of this architectural masterpiece for more than 40 years. Read more about its rich history and architectural design here.

The Towers’ stunning design has been featured over the years in many books and movies. Its latest spot in the limelight? At Pittsburgh Filmmaker’s upcoming art show!

Debuting at the Melwood Gallery on Friday, April 28th, this event will feature work by Pittsburgh Filmmakers members and students in photography programs, as well as a one-night screening of short films completed by students in The Filmmaking Intensives program.
