Garfield Commons
Pittsburgh, PA

Garfield Commons is a multi-phased 175 unit development created in partnership with the Pittsburgh Housing Authority. The project converted an existing mid-century public housing campus into a traditional styled neighborhood of townhomes, single family homes, community center and public green space seamlessly integrated with the surrounding urban fabric. In a prime location, the community is within minutes of shopping, two hospitals and Pittsburgh public schools.

Project Highlights:

  • Two- to four- bedroom units range in size from 1,200 to 2,000 square feet
  • All homes include window coverings and private patio
  • Although the site is located along a hillside, the design team was able to resolve
    its configuration for easy access: 88% of the units are designed for visitability
