The affordable housing project, at 1232 Metropolitan Pkwy SW, would bring 64 units to the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Atlanta, 54 of which would be “at or below” 60 percent Area Median Income (AMI).

Affordable housing firms Woda Cooper Companies, Inc. and Parallel Housing, Inc. are the project’s developers.

Pimsler Hoss Architects is behind Blackburne Greene’s design.

A timeline for going vertical has not been disclosed.

Nearby, the first phase of Pittsburgh Yards, a “work, create, shop, play” mixed-use being built across 31 acres, has begun leasing.

I’m all for more affordable housing!
But that building is depressing looking.

I know renders just pull in any old stock photo to fill out the scene but I think the red Ferrari sends the wrong message lol. Good to have housing at a lower AMI than usual.

How is it that Developers are able to obtain all this money in financing projects, but consistently decide to build ugly trashy looking buildings like this… Affordable doesn’t have to look like the county jail!

They cut the costs with smaller windows, and no balconies– among other things. And pocketing what they can.
It really does look like the county jail, or Section 8.
