Oak Hill Hope VI Redevelopment
Location: Pittsburgh, PA. Formerly a deteriorated public housing complex on isolated hilltop location
Poorly connected superblocks and a forbidding hilltop location added to the isolation of the low-income residents of the previous public housing development occupying the site. Oak Hill Hope Vi project undertook extensive efforts to re-establish a connected street network as part of the strategy to create a mixed-income neighborhood integrated into the fabric of Pittsburgh.
Attractive housing on new compact city blocks has proved popular for both public-housing residents and market-rate customers at Oak Hill in Pittsburg, built on the reconfigured site of a semi-abandoned and isolated public housing development.
