PITTSBURGH, PA (June 18, 2020) The City of Pittsburgh is happy to welcome new affordable housing units to Homewood.
KBK Enterprises completed 58 new housing units at the Kelly Hamilton development, a mixed-income community consisting of 42 affordable and 16 market-rate units. A ribbon-cutting had been planned for the spring but had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Work is nearly complete on a new community center for the development, and new streets and landscaping are part of the upgrades.
The Kelly Hamilton team actively engaged with local MWBE businesses to create economic opportunities on the project and outperformed its goals: developers hired 34 Section 3 low-income employees and contracted with 61% MWBE companies.
“This is an example of a housing development that is good for Homewood, good for homeowners of all incomes, and good for business. This is the kind of work — and opportunity — that we need to see spread across all corners of Pittsburgh,” Mayor William Peduto said.
All of the affordable units are fully leased. There are only two and three bedroom market-rate units still available. Those interested in market-rate units may contact the temporary leasing office at (412) 361-0567.
