Affordable Family Housing Sharps Terrace
Sharpsburg, PA












Sixty-six units of family housing are reduced in density to thirty-six units. The former common stairways are converted into individual entries for two-story apartments. Two buildings of the six-building complex were demolished to allow for construction of more functional alternatives: six new townhouse units with garages. The other four buildings were renovated. Heavy emphasis was placed on landscaping, common amenities such as computer learning labs, and creating at least one porch space for every unit. Perkins Eastman Architects provided the design development drawings and the local liaison. Funded by LIHTC through partnership with the Allegheny County Housing Authority.
