PITTSBURGH — The Community Builders Inc. (TCB), a nonprofit developer of mixed-income housing, has opened Hillcrest Residences, a 66-unit seniors housing community in Pittsburgh’s Carrick neighborhood.
The community features eight handicap-accessible apartments to allow residents to age in place. Amenities include a community room with library, garden, business center, fitness room, outdoor terrace, private room for health services, laundry rooms and 36 parking spaces.
The Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh, the HUD Neighborhood Stabilization Program, Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta, Citizens Bank and The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency both contributed to the development.
Through partnerships with local organizations such as the American Health Care Group, Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and UPMC Stroke Institute, Hillcrest residents will have access to supportive services. The University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing provides quarterly health screenings, monthly healthy eating tips, exercise and fall prevention workshops.
