Heinz Endowments Make Initial Grant for New Granada Restoration

The Heinz Foundation have announced a grant of $200,000 to Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation to work in partnership with the Hill Community Development Corporation (Hill CDC) to begin physical stabilization work for the New Granada Theatre and planning for its future use. The building was designed by Pittsburgh’s first African American architect Louis A. S. Bellinger (1891-1946). The Hill Community Development Corporation expects to have a matching grant from the State Department of Community and Economic Development.

PHLF’s Construction Manager Tom Keffer, will begin immediately to meet with engineers and contractors to further define the immediate work program and construction budget; Eugene Matta, Director of Special Projects for PHLF, will join the New Granada Planning Committee to bring his experience in heading the team that restored City Theatre in New York to the planning effort.
