The Pittsburgh Housing Authority has set aside $33.4 million towards the demolition of a dilapidated, crime-ridden project in the Hill District. The PHA will raze 734 apartments and replace them with 440 new townhouse units. Only 404 of the 734 units are now occupied at Addison Terrace. The project will take 10 years to complete and be done in phases.
This is a significant financial commitment by the City of Pittsburgh toward cleaning up and revitalizing the Hill District.
