On July 14th, neighbors in the 10th Ward gathered at Goodwill and learned more about the design plans for the first Community Land Trust in the City of Pittsburgh, the Lawrenceville CLT. This meeting was the second in a series of community presentations coordinated by Lawrenceville Corporation regarding this exciting new project to bring permanently affordable homeownership to the area.
Architects Mike Gwin and Kate Tunney from Rothschild Doyno Collaborative presented updated designs for the homes (check out the slides here) and LC’s Executive Director Matt Galluzzo and Real Estate & Planning Manager Ed Nusser answered questions about the CLT program. As the meeting wrapped up several residents stayed afterwards to talk with the architects and LC staff.

- Goal to make new CLT houses indistinguishable from current market rate homes in the neighborhood
- Each house implements sustainable design principles to ensure eco-friendly structures that stand the test of time
- Building modular homes means most construction is done off site, minimizing noise and other complications brought on by on-site construction.
