Landmarks Awards Preservation Loans to South Side & Wilkinsburg

Our Preservation Fund loaned $250,000 to the South Side Local Development Company (SSLDC) so it could purchase the long-derelict Foto Hut building at 1505–07 East Carson Street. The three-story commercial building was constructed in 1881. SSLDC has formed a joint venture with TREK Development Group to create nine apartments and three commercial spaces in the historic building. SSLDC intends to move into one of the spaces. Construction on the $3 million project will begin in the summer of 2005.

A $68,000 Preservation Fund loan from Landmarks, will enable Black Vietnam Era Veterans, Inc. to purchase a heating system for its headquarters building at 1027 Wood Street in Wilkinsburg.
