Wood Street

Downtown Pittsburgh

Peter Lawrence, a new women's retail shop in Downtown Pittsburgh recently opened in the former J.R. Weldin Co. stationery and gift store at 413 Wood Street. Next door at 417 Wood Street is Boutique La Passerelle, another women's retail store that features European fashions. Both buildings are owned by Landmarks Development Corporation, a subsidiary of PHLF, which has restored them to create a women’s retail corridor along Downtown’s Wood Street.

Lending For Historic Preservation

As the lending arm of PHLF, Landmarks Community Capital Corporation (LCCC)—a non-profit subsidiary— advances the cause of preservation by extending loans to projects that facilitate renovation activities in historic neighborhoods throughout the Pittsburgh region.

Among the projects we financed in 2020, is an $833,000 construction loan, which together with the City of Pittsburgh’s Urban Redevelopment Authority, created the critical financing stream for the renovation and reuse of this significant historic building in Manchester, on Pittsburgh’s North Side.

The kitchen incubator at Fulton Commons, a 19,000 square foot shared-work community in the former St. Joseph Elementary School. The kitchen is the latest component to open in the Commons, which includes a co-working office, and artist studio spaces.

Fulton Commons, located at 156 Fulton Street, is the brainchild of brothers, Brian and Irwin Mendelssohn, proprietors of Botero Development, a Pittsburgh development firm involved in residential, retail, office, and mixed-use projects.

Certified by the United States Department of the Treasury as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), LCC makes sixty percent of its loans in low-to-moderate-income neighborhoods to either for-profit or non-profit developers.

Contact Senior Loan Officer, Rob Wagner (rob@phlf.org or 412-471-5808, ext. 538) for more information or if you wish to discuss your project or to apply for a loan.
