Located in the Pittsburgh’s historic Hill District, Dinwiddie Street Housing boasts a rich cultural history birthed by legacies of the past residents and cultivated by current community members. The Dinwiddie community is a distinct working-class neighborhood with its own unique flavor, while also serving as a bridge proudly connecting the Centre Avenue corridor to Uptown Pittsburgh.
Everything old is new again…In 2008, through the works of Trek Development Group, community partners and Hill District leadership, the once thriving neighborhood was restored to its iconic beauty and vibrance. Redevelopment consisted of 95 affordable housing units, broken down into four phases of development. In order, to combine the old with the new, the development team, with the help of community leaders, reviewed existing properties to carefully assess which existing buildings could be retained & where they would need to interweave new construction.
These carefully planned details resulted in the creation of new townhomes and intricate building remodels that carefully retained the existing character of stone façades and ultimately led to the development of architecturally high end affordable loft spaces that preserved countless original architectural details in the1920’s Miller School building addition.
While the details and rebuilding of the Dinwiddie Street community revitalize the physical landscape, the soul of this neighborhood is and will always be its people. Dinwiddie Street Housing remains an intergenerational community of neighbors with a heart for their hometown and each other.
