Massaro Properties was pleased to be a sponsor of the Wood Street Commons Celebration & AHP Grant Presentation, held in downtown Pittsburgh on August 10. The event brought together the many state, county and city leaders who have helped to transform the residential portion of the building at 304 Wood Street into a safe and affordable home for low income and at-risk individuals and families.
An impressive roster of speakers including Mayor Bill Peduto, Congressman Mike Doyle and Senator Wayne Fontana were on hand to discuss the improvements made to the 16-story building over the years, as well as future plans for continued upgrades. The festivities concluded with the presentation of a $500,000 Affordable Housing Program grant by FHLBank Pittsburgh and PNC Bank to the Residences at Wood Street Board President Larry Swanson.
Wood Street Commons also houses the Wood Street Commercial Suites, for which Massaro Properties is the exclusive listing agent. When our first commercial tenants — Pennsylvania CareerLink and the city’s RESET/EARN Program — moved in, they forged a culture of community support within the building. Our newest tenant, Auberle’s 412 Youth Zone, fits in perfectly with this socially conscious environment. The landlord is seeking a few more like-minded organizations to occupy the remaining commercial space and is offering competitive rental rates that include tenant improvement allowances and design services.
