Howard Hanna Launches Urban Development Division

PITTSBURGH, Pa. – Howard Hanna Real Estate Services has launched an urban development division focused on inner-city real estate.

The “technology-first” office will begin in Pittsburgh as a pilot before expanding to other major metropolitan areas including Cleveland. 

“We have always been an urban company. Our first office was in the city of Pittsburgh and remains in the city,” said Helen Hanna Casey, CEO of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, in a statement. “While we’ve been a major player in cities since the company’s founding in 1957, we want to continue our growth in these key areas in our footprint.”

The division is modeled after Howard Hanna’s Condominium and New Homes divisions, each started decades ago to meet the specific needs to each market segment.

“Looking at Howard Hanna’s major presence in cities throughout our market areas, it just makes sense to build and enhance our core capabilities to broaden our offerings to all clients in urban areas,” said Matt Gilley, the newly announced vice president of urban development for Howard Hanna.

More information on the division is available by contacting Gilley at 412 737 4481 or
