Allegheny Dwellings

These projects are to be completed in two phases. The first project will be a complete revamp of the Allegheny Dwellings Playground.The other will be the creation of a new Gazebo style shelter for residents to enjoy while outside. Fineview & Perry Hilltop Citizens Councils have been collaborating with Choice Neighborhood Planning partner Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP) to accommodate all resident input in the planning of this project. A new playground and gazebo will be a capstone to the larger project which is the complete redesign and renewal of the Allegheny Dwellings Community. 

 

The playground project will include an interactive public art installation throughout the new fencing that will be in place. The Citizen Councils along with HACP, have engaged the Office of Public Art to assist in selecting a local artist that will engage with residents for the creation of the new art installation. The project will add a new level of engagement and a way for all ages to interact with Art while outside playing in a new vibrant environment. To provide feedback or ideas for the art installation please contact the Community Project Coordinator, Jordan Smith.
