What will the future of housing in Lawrenceville be? With approximately 1,000 market-rate residential units in the planning or construction phase, will there be responsible growth and affordability for all? Lawrenceville Corporation (LC) and Lawrenceville United (LU), along with residents, property owners, developers, and elected officials are seeking a “housing for all,” strategy as a priority. Tomorrow, LC and LU will host an event focused on the state of housing in Lawrenceville at Goodwill of Southwestern PA.

Come to the meeting to learn about the current housing market and recent history of Lawrenceville’s residential real estate market. There will be a panel discussion with local leaders to discuss tools available to preserve and create affordable housing throughout Lawrenceville and the City of Pittsburgh. Additionally, the Lawrenceville Corporation will outline work to date on the Community Land Trust initiative.

According to the event page:

Residents can expect to walk away with working knowledge on the current real estate market, efforts within the community and on local levels to create tools and policies around preserving affordability, and information on products and programs that can help you purchase a home in the community, access resources to prepare you for homeownership, and resources for renters in the community.

The event is free, but please register here.
