Plan for Manchester housing upgrades moving forward (Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh)

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

The Pittsburgh Housing Authority is aiming to rehab 86 public housing units in the Manchester neighborhood in Pittsburgh's North Side.

Housing officials say they will seek federal approval next month for the improvements, which aim to repair and replace floors, furnaces and water heaters, install new cabinets and bathroom fixtures, as well as building roofs.

Residents will have to temporarily relocate, but will have the right to return when repairs are completed, though not necessarily to their identical unit, according to materials from the housing authority.

The homes are a mix of multi-family apartment buildings and row homes scattered throughout the historic neighborhood, which is filled with brick homes and many brick sidewalks.
