Project Description

Development Consultant and Community Planning — South Hills High School Site Assessment – Mt. Washington, a vibrant and well-known community located directly to the south of Downtown Pittsburgh has experienced a slight decline in overall population and economic stability due largely to lack of investment by homeowners and/or landlords to maintain property.   Their Community Development Corporation wanted to assess and evaluate development of the former South Hills High School (SHHS) site. Our work included conducting a site visit with key stakeholders, identifying market opportunities and constraints, submitting an analysis of findings and recommendations from reports and interviews, and providing development concepts with general cost estimates. The site has been successfully developed into a retirement community. This project illustrates our experience conducting in-depth analyses, making recommendations and understanding of Pittsburgh housing markets.
