Deeply Rooted with a Focus on the Future

Are you an individual donor, real estate/property investor or even a potential philanthropic partner?

Today, the Hill District is moving at the speed of light – or at least it seems that way! With hundreds of millions in residential and commercial development in the last two decades and over $2B slated for commercial, entertainment and mixed-use development, the Hill District is not only a historic neighborhood, but a future destination.

Modern affordable housing units and newly minted plans for commercial development rooted in the rich cultural legacy of the Hill District makes it a one-of-a-kind area for residents, businesses and investors.

The Hill District is designated as a:

- Keystone Communities Enterprise Zone (KOZ)
- Pittsburgh Central Keystone Investment Zone (KIZ)
- Opportunity Zone (OZ)
- New Market Tax Credit eligible
- Low Income Housing Tax Credit eligible
- Qualified HUBZone

The Hill District of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as of 2010, comprises Census Tracts 305 (Crawford Roberts and Lower Hill), 501 (Crawford-Roberts and Middle Hill), 506 (Upper Hill), 509 (Bedford Dwellings), 510 and 511 (Terrace Village).

Working in partnership with the Hill CDC, there are so many opportunities for the re-emergence of this historically important neighborhood – not only to embrace the past, but to grow into its fullness. 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 is on the move!”

Bordering major research, innovation, medical, arts and educational institutions including the University of Pittsburgh, Point Park University, Carnegie Mellon, Carlow University and the adjacent Downtown business district as well as an intersection of virtually every main traffic artery, the Hill District is ground zero for Pittsburgh's future. Joining with the Hill CDC to invest in the Hill District for commerce and residential development is an exciting prospect to ponder!
