Beginning in 2009, TREK Development Group has developed 95 rental townhomes and apartments along Dinwiddie, Heldman, Reed, and Miller Streets in the Hill District neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh. The project consisted of a mix of new construction and rehabilitation of historic brownstones. More than 40% of the townhomes are slated to convert to for-sale opportunities in 15 years.
TREK purchased a troubled Section 8 development (Reed Roberts) with the intention of dismantling the property over 3-5 years, allowing time for new units to be constructed and tenants to relocate. Reed Roberts has been demolished, marking a key milestone in the redevelopment continuum. The neighborhood is now free from the physical, social and economic decay that defined this property for years.
The Miller School Lofts: built in 1904, closed in 2006, the Miller School is re-imagined in 2014 and converted into loft-style apartments. See the plans here.
