Restoring & repurposing a long-vacant historic building as affordable housing

Falconhurst Development broke ground on an $11.5 million multi-site restoration and new construction project in the Borough of Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania on September 28., 2015.

Scheduled to open in 2016, the development will include four long-vacant buildings erected at the turn of the century and a set of new townhouses in and around the Hamnett Place neighborhood, which is listed on the National Historic Registry.

The development is led by Landmarks Development Corporation, a real estate arm of the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation.

The housing is considered “affordable housing” and will be priced under HUD designation depending on size, occupancy and income.
