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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

    1. 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.

  3. This building looks awful! And its even worse because artist rendering usually look better then the actually project.

  4. I have kept up with so called affordable housing. What constitutes affordable housing? In many places you have to have to have a certain income before you can even get an interview or fill out an application. So when I see or hear about a building, especially a building that advertises affordable housing, it makes me wonder if they are looking for a certain clientele for their buildings.
