Redevelopment of the Robert E. Williams Shelter

Redevelopment of the Robert E. Williams Shelter

The Robert E. Williams Park Shelter was established in 1963. Since then, it has become a vital hub for the surrounding community of the Upper Hill District, as well as the Greater Hill District and the Greater City of Pittsburgh.

Recently, the City of Pittsburgh performed an assessment of all its facilities. Included in the review was the shelter at the Robert E. Williams Park, in which several structural issues posing safety risks to the public were highlighted.

Based on this report, the City has embarked on a project to redevelop the shelter anew. The goal is to have the project completed by Fall of 2019. This page serves as a hub for all information related to the shelter, including meeting announcements and materials connected to the redesign of the structure.
