The Phipps-McElveen Building

Phipps-McElveen Building

Now student housing under the name “Penn Commons.” It was originally built, in 1896, for Henry Phipps, Andrew Carnegie’s close friend and the donor of the Phipps Conservatories for both Pittsburgh and Allegheny (the latter of which, much expanded, is now the National Aviary).
