Braddock Mayor John Fetterman calls the planned redevelopment of the former UPMC Braddock site “an engine to drive the area forward.”

The $20 million project, announced at a news conference last week, is planned to include office and retail space, 24 units of rental housing, 11 single-family homes and a 20,000-square-foot community park facing Braddock Avenue.
