The Centre Avenue YMCA project is the catalytic renovation and adaptive reuse of the historic YMCA property located at 2621 Centre Avenue in the Hill District neighborhood of Pittsburgh. The four-story building was constructed in 1922 and served as one of the only social and recreational facilities for African Americans in the region from the 1920s through the 1950s. The proposed renovation includes 74 SRO units on the second, third, and fourth floors of the building with programming space on the first floor. All of these units will be affordable to households below 30% of AMI. Air conditioning will be added to the building and new, energy-efficient HVAC systems will be installed. The kitchen will be expanded and an elevator will be added to the building. The renovation will be conducted using high-quality, environmentally friendly materials and the units will be well designed with thoughtful floorplans and natural light. While the current layout has shared bathrooms with minimal privacy, the new configuration provides 10 individual bathrooms, five of which are ADA accessible.
