The Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh announced the start of construction on the $24.4-million project to build a 65-unit mixed-income housing on the city’s North Side.
The new housing, to be developed by Trek Development Group and Allies and Ross Management and Development Corporation, will be built on and surrounding the site of the Allegheny Dwellings public housing community.
Phase I activities consist of the remediation and demolition of six barracks-style buildings and the construction of new housing consisting of townhome, walkup, and conventional apartment units.
Once redeveloped, 58 mixed-income units will occupy the former public housing site. An additional seven units will be developed on Federal St. to produce a total of 65 units in Phase I.
The property will offer eight fully accessible units for individuals with physical disabilities and four units that will be fully equipped for individuals with hearing and/or vision impairments. The property will contain a mix of residential units (elevator apartment building, walkups and row houses) as well as dedicated spaces for community use.
