Renovations underway on Broad Street building

A new three story addition will be built on the west side of the Sewickley Executive Building to house an elevator in the building, located at 429-435 Broad Street in Sewickley.
The Sewickley Executive Building, 429-435 Broad St., is being renovated and will be leased to new tenants when completed. The building was once considered as a headquarters for Mars-based Eddy Homes.
Cory Hershey of Phillips Masonry Inc., Ambridge, takes a break to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich Tuesday morning while working on the interior of the Sewickley Executive Building, 429-435 Broad St. in Sewickley. Hershey is part of a group of workers who are renovating the building for Eddy Homes.

The signs of construction work abound outside the Sewickley Executive Building on Broad Street just west of Beaver Street.

Company spokesman Jon Moritz said the Mars-based builder once considered putting its headquarters at the site. Those plans have changed, but the company has gutted the building and is renovating it for a new retail/commerical space in downtown Sewickley.

“We’ve had a lot of people call us,” Moritz said of interest in the finished building.

Further details weren’t available, but Sewickley Manager Kevin Flannery said the renovations are welcome in the borough.

“I think it’s a remarkable improvement,” Flannery said.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
