Wilkinsburg Buildings Restored

PHLF has completed restoration—including new infill construction—of townhouses and an apartment building in Wilkinsburg, as part of an $11.5 million neighborhood development program to create more quality affordable housing in restored buildings.

The buildings include 608 Mulberry Street, a wonderful brick building with character, which will offer three family apartments, one on each floor. Two adjacent townhouses, 604-606 Mulberry, are new buildings that replaced a structure which could not be saved. The townhouses, which are located across the street from St. James R.C. Church, have off-street parking in the rear.

At the intersection of Rebecca Avenue and Coal Street, we have completed the restoration of an eight-unit brick apartment building, which will be known as the Columbian Hall Apartments, which we discovered was the building’s original name.

Leasing by NDC Real Estate Management is currently underway and ahead of schedule.

Still under restoration construction is a building at 520 Jeanette Street, which will include two family apartments and the Falconhurst Building, a red-brick apartment building located at 724 Kelly Avenue.

In the gallery below are some before-and-after photos of the houses and the interiors of the units.
