8 Units | Expected Completion: Early 2023
New Construction

City of Bridges Community Land Trust is partnering with the Polish Hill Civic Association for an eight-home development in the Polish Hil neighborhood. These homes will be built on land that has been largely vacant since a 2007 arson destroyed part of the area. 

In 2020, CBCLT received a $750,000 grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh’s Affordable Housing Program to fund four of the eight-homes. This property is scheduled to begin construction in August 2022, with an estimated completion of Spring 2023.

Polish Hill Fabricators Request

City of Bridges Community Land Trust, Rothschild Doyno Collaborative, and architects aim to engage with the community in hiring folks to do some of the fabrication for materials in the eight-development coming to Polish Hill in the next 12 months. To that end, they have asked the PHCA to reach out to the community seeking fabricators—connected to the neighborhood—who are interested in being considered as subcontractors on any of the following work products. Please submit the completed form by Wednesday, June 30. Feel free to include photos of past work or a portfolio website, if you happen to have one. For more information, please contact Julie Collins at Thanks!
