Lot 24 is a 96-unit apartment development located in the Strip District at 24th and Railroad Streets. The property was completed in December 2012 and was fully leased within six months. MI-Apartment Home, the residential management arm of McCaffery Interests, Inc., manages leasing and resident services of the project in conjunction with the management of The Cork Factory.

The development is the second venture of a partnership between McCaffery Interests, Inc., Chuck Hammel and Bob Beynon. In 2005, the partners collaborated on the development of the award-winning Cork Factory Lofts, also located in the Strip District. The partnership is actively seeking new opportunities in the area.

The Lot 24 residences feature abundant natural light, granite countertops, wood flooring, stainless steel appliances, and balconies and terraces. Residents enjoy a number of luxury amenities, including: a swimming pool and spa, concierge, fiber optic technology, WiFi, a fitness center, a stately club room and on-site management. The red brick and corrugated metal building was designed by Antunovich Associates of Chicago and features interior by hospitality designer Intra-Spec of California. Pittsburgh's Massaro Corporation was the General Contractor. The building was constructed solely with union labor and was financed in part with Union pension funds. It was designed to meet LEED certified standards, and will be applying for certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.

The project was financed with the participation of PenTrust and The ERECT Funds, the Urban Redevelopment Authority and the Strategic Investment Funds, and is supported with an RACP grant.
