Large and long abandoned, the Larimer School is a listed NRHP structure and is being converted into mixed income housing with 334 units.

**2023 update**
From Pella Windows, who recently installed new windows.
"Cornerstone Village on Larimer Avenue is an apartment building located outside of downtown Pittsburgh in the popular East Liberty neighborhood. This building wasn't always a living space — previously, it was Larimer Elementary School, which sat vacant for the past forty years. Now this historic building has a new purpose: To provide the community with affordable living quarters while still maintaining its historical architecture, which adds to the beauty of the neighborhood. The new apartments have a wide selection of spacious floor plans to fit your lifestyle, from one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments with your choice of garden or townhouse."
