103 Marshall Avenue
103 and 133 Marshall Avenue.
These two magnificent turn of the century homes have undergone a tremendous transformation. Observatory Hill, Inc., the non-profit community group which represents the neighborhood of Observatory Hill, has renovated these two structures. They are just two of the seven houses that the community group is undertaking in its housing initiative. 103 Marshall Avenue will have displays courtesy of the Western Pennsylvania Craftsmen Guild, an organization dedicated to preserving the beauty and skill of the original craftmen who adorned our historic houses.
The Marshall Avenue homes were once multi-family rentals and had been neglected through the years. Responding to neighbors concerns, OHI teamed with the Northside Leadership Conference, the Urban Redevelopment Authority and Dollar Bank to acquire those two properties as well as 5 other properties along Perrysville Avenue. Our contractor is Angel Contracting and our architects are Tia+Lee. Additional funding was provided by City Councilwoman Barbara Burns and State Rep. Don Walko.
