KBK Enterprises along with The Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh (HACP), its development partner hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday, November 1, 2017, to commemorate the completion of 52 new units of
mixed-income housing located in the city’s Hill District. These units represent the third phase of redevelopment activity for the former Addison Terrace public housing community. Phase 3, known as “Middle Hill” consists of 52 units, including one, two and three bedroom townhomes.
The redevelopment also features a community center known as The Teenie Harris Center. The name given to commemorate famed Pittsburgh Courier photographer Charles “Teenie” Harris. The lights above the center’s doors are designed to look like Harris’ iconic camera—with the bulbs where the flash would be, and the railing of the center’s porch featuring silhouettes representing Harris with his camera in his trademark hat and coat.
Skyline Terrace Phase 3/Middle Hill is one of KBK Enterprises’ largest and most significant redevelopment efforts to date. The total development cost for the planned 400-unit development, including significant upgrades to local public utilities and streets is approximately $160 million, making Skyline Terrace one of the largest redevelopments of affordable housing within the City of Pittsburgh. All of the redevelopment phases are on target to be certified under Enterprise Green Communities with Phase 1 being designated as the largest Enterprise Green Community in Pennsylvania.
