Landmarks Awards $2,000 grant to South Side Local Development Company
March 3, 2005
Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation’s $2,000 grant to South Side Local Development Company (SSLDC) launched the inaugural East Carson Street Architectural Lighting Program. The two buildings to be lighted this year are the historic Maul Building at 1700 East Carson Street and the handsome Bridge Cafe at 2302-2304 East Carson Street.
The lighting of these key historic landmarks located at intersections for highest visibility will be some time this spring.
Laura Beres, Business Policy Specialist for SSLDC said, “Only through the generous support of Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation could we highlight the handsome architecture on South Side and celebrate the historic nature of the district.”
Next year SSLDC hopes to light five more buildings, and to date, the $2,000 grant from Landmarks has leveraged an additional $18,000 to launch this significant program. We hope that such a program will be modeled in our city’s other significant historic commercial corridors.
