KBK was selected as developer of Skyline Terrace (formerly known as Addison Terrace), a former public housing community, situated in the center of Pittsburgh’s Hill District. Skyline Terrace lies on approximately 50 acres and was comprised of 734 barrack style row houses. With most of the units dating back to the 1940’s the plan is to replace the units with a 400 unit town home, mixed income development. This would include market rate and subsidized housing. The new housing would be constructed over the next five to six years in phases. Phase 1 comprised of 186 townhomes includes an 8,000 square foot state of the art community center and management office known as the Ella Mae Hillman Center. Phase 1 was completed June 2015.
Phase 2 of Skyline Terrace features 90 residential units that occupy Bentley Drive. 54 units are located in a single, four story, garden style building with an elevator known as “The Lofts.” Amenities include a fitness center, business center, kitchen and club room. An additional 36 townhomes are also included in this development. Phase 2 was completed December 2016.
