Focused on the Future
Today, the Hill District is moving at the speed of light – or atleast it seems that way! With $400 million in residential and commercial development in the last two decades and over $300 million in entertainment and mixed-use infrastructure currently in progress, the Hill District is a destination community.
From 350 new affordable housing units in the last decade to the construction of 100,000 square feet of new office and retail commercial space, and 600+ more rental units coming on line before 2015, we are a community dedicated to providing a great atmosphere to live, work and raise a family.
The creation of the Keystone Opportunity Zone (KOZ), the Keystone Innovation Zone (KIZ) and an exciting new master plan, add to the attraction for many businesses who have capitalized on the affordable, value-added commercial space now available in the Hill District. The former Connelly Technical School is being renovated to serve as a regional incubator for emerging technology enterprises. The renovation and development of New Granada Square will cement Centre Avenue as the Hill District’s new-again commercial corridor. You too, should take advantage of its strategic location and affordable space!
There are so many opportunities for this re-emerging neighborhood – not to live in the past; but to grow into what it ought to be. As proud resident Walter Worthington once offered, “Come, build your enterprises, live your faith, share your hopes and dreams, and pass on to coming generations that legacy of freedom in mind, body and spirit which is ours… our community on the move!”
Bordering major research, medical and educational institutions including University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon, and the adjacent business district as well as an intersection of virtually every main traffic artery, the Hill District is ground zero for future growth. Investing in the Hill District for R&D, commerce and residential development is a tantalizing prospect to ponder!
