Five years in the making, the Bausman Street Independent Living project is a newly constructed supportive housing development designed to complement an existing urban, residential context.  The project composed of 3 buildings with 4 apartments in each building that provides affordable housing to low-income disabled adults.  The project represents the first new construction in decades in Pittsburgh’s Knoxville neighborhood.  The units, which replaced a vacant lot and an adjoining storage building, were designed to fully integrate into an existing neighborhood and use existing infrastructure. The Bausman Street Independent Living project represents a unique partnership between two Pittsburgh-based nonprofits, three social service providers and Pittsburgh’s U.S. Housing and Urban Development office.
