From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Ask resident Carolyn Brown about her new apartment at Sandstone Quarry, and she can barely contain her excitement.

“I'm in heaven,” said Ms. Brown, 72, of her apartment at the newly opened mixed-income development in the Fineview neighborhood of Pittsburgh's North Side.

“It's a nice place down here,” said Ms. Brown, who said she appreciates the views of the city, as well as the safety of her one-bedroom apartment.

“The transformation is really great. They way they did this, I really love it,” she said.

The homes are the first phase of a planned redevelopment of one of Pittsburgh's oldest public housing sites, Allegheny Dwellings. The 65 new units are a combination of townhomes, duplexes, and a four-story apartment building; 18 are market-rate, 47 are at various levels of affordability.
