The new owner of SouthSide Works is pitching its latest plan to reinvigorate the former steel mill site — a 246-unit apartment building to be built on the Monongahela riverfront.

SomeraRoad outlined its proposal for the seven-story complex on South Water Street adjacent to South Shore Riverfront Park and Hofbrauhaus restaurant to the city planning commission Tuesday.

“We think this project really can be a beacon and a landmark for SouthSide Works, both from the opposite side of the river as well as the balance of the South Side of Pittsburgh,” said Andrew Donchez, SomeraRoad director of development.
