SAN FRANCISCO, CA - February 18, 2011: TCB's East Liberty Place North community in the East Liberty neighborhood of Pittsburgh is featured as a Project of Note in the HOUSING FOR ALL AMERICANS special report recently published by Affordable Housing Finance. The report can be accessed online at:
Affordable Housing Finance describes the report as "a comprehensive, high-impact report to the 112th Congress and other key legislators nationwide about the low-income housing tax credit program. HOUSING FOR ALL AMERICANS comes at a crucial time when Congress is focused on economic recovery as well as cutting the federal budget."
East Liberty Place North, located on the 5800 block of Penn Avenue in Pittsburgh, is the redevelopment of the north parcel of the former East Mall Apartments site on Penn Avenue in the East Liberty neighborhood, a neighborhood that is coming back to life after thirty years of decline and stagnation. This new, 54-unit mixed-income, mixed use, elevator building features three floors of environmentally-friendly apartments above an 11,000 s.f. ground-floor commercial space, management offices, and community activity areas. The residential and commercial components are structured as separate condominiums.
The community features attractive, spacious, and well-appointed apartments that meet or exceed local market-rate offerings. Building systems integrate green technologies such as ENERGY STAR rated appliances and lighting fixtures, high-efficiency heat-pumps, and a focus on air quality in the decisions on materials and finishes and ventilating where possible. The building achieved LEED Gold certification and is the region's first LEED for HOMES multifamily certified project and TCB's first LEED certified project.
