Torti Gallas is pleased to announce that Skyline Terrace, formerly know as Addison Terrace, in Pittsburgh, PA has been approved as a Green Communities Certified Development. Enterprise Green Communities certification demonstrates a commitment to providing high performance, healthy homes for low-income families.
Working with The Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh and KBK Enterprises, Torti Gallas designed the neighborhood revitalization of Skyline Terrace, located in Pittsburgh’s Hill District. The former neighborhood included 726 units on an approximately 40 acre parcel. Torti Gallas provided services including community meetings, site analysis and a three day workshop which allowed for the development of a consensus-based neighborhood design and resulted in the design and construction of 400 new homes.
Torti Gallas' master plan strengthens vehicular and pedestrian connections to the surrounding Centre Avenue community, providing outdoor spaces that capitalize on views to downtown and the Monongahela River, and home designs that blend with the surrounding context to create a diverse, mixed income community. The new Community Center is connected to the new YMCA and Library.
