On or about October 2, 2020, the City of Pittsburgh will authorize HACP to submit a request to HUD for the release of the following federal funds to undertake the project known as Oak Hill Burrows Views: (a) Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments Contract; (b) HACP Moving to Work (“MTW”) Funds under the 1937 Act as modified by the 1996 and 1999 Consolidated Appropriations Act; and (c) Low Income Housing Tax Credits under IRS Code Section 42.
The release of the aforementioned funds will be for the purposes of developing Oak Hill Burrows Views, which includes new construction of 123-units of mixed income housing comprised of two 4-story garden style apartment buildings with elevators, containing approximately fifty-four (54) units each, at 219 Burrows Street and 239 Burrows Street, and 15 two-story townhouse units, located in four clusters on adjacent parcels along Benson Place and Turner Place in the Terrace Village neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh, 15213.
