The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency awarded Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation tax credits for the Crescent Apartments project, a 27-unit restoration development of two historic structures in the Hamnett Place neighborhood of Wilkinsburg. This $9 million dollar project was a one of the catalyst for redevelopment in Wilkinsburg.
The restoration of these two buildings will bring 27 units of affordable housing back to Wilkinsburg, with 23 units in the Crescent Apartments and four units in the Wilson House. These buildings were highlighted as essential components of the rejuvenation of the Borough in the Wilkinsburg Neighborhood Transformation Initiative.
