1808 Jancey Street Pittsburgh, PA 15206
46 new housing units, 13 in the former Morningside Public School and 33 in a new building being built on the school’s parking lot.
Construction began in 2017 on Jancey Street and Greenwood Avenue.
The $13.6 million project is adapting a 120-year-old school, adding a new wing and renovating a newer portion of the school into a community center. A public plaza on the corner will replace the former gymnasium. This project won a PHFA innovation and design award for community impact.
Forty units will have one bedroom, six will have two and all but seven will be priced for people making between 20 and 60 percent of the area median income.
Morningside Crossing is among the largest retrofits of an old building to meet passive house energy-use standards in the area. This usually cuts energy costs by 80-85 percent. The windows are triple-pane and insulation is 8 inches thick. A heat-recovery ventilator moves two air flows, fresh in, stale out, constantly providing trickles of air, unlike HVAC systems that run full bore for a while then shut off.
