Vancouver is one of the world’s most beautiful cities, a forest of high-rises set in the shadow of the North Shore Mountains. The West Coast metropolis is often cited as a model of smart urbanism and ranks among the best places to live in the world. But for Vancouver real estate entrepreneur Breanna Tyson and her partner Brett Walsh, there was something irresistible about Pittsburgh.

They moved here about three years go, and their company, Hullett Properties, is already making its mark on the city — including a recently completed 27-unit condo complex at 2554 Smallman St. in the Strip District which houses the James Cafe on the ground floor.

Hullett Properties’ other projects in the works include:

  • The Triangle Building, a vacant, historic property Downtown, will house 15 apartments and another James Cafe.
  • A 179-unit apartment building at Railroad and 26th streets in the Strip District will be built on the site of the old J. Harris Lampshades factory starting in the spring of 2023.

“One of the things I love about this city is how walkable it really is,” Walsh says. “If you look at the Triangle Building — how long does it take to go from there to PNC Park? It’s like nothing.”
