Allegheny West Foundation

The AWF Plaza is a mixed-use project that will bring 45 units of affordable senior housing to low-income individuals. The first floor will have building amenities, including the management office, a laundry room for the use of the tenants, and a community room for the use of both the tenants and the neighbors from the community, and commercial rental space. The design of AWF Plaza addresses issues of both social and environmental sustainability via its siting, building configuration and integration of Passive House features. The project site sits at the edge of a stable residential district, near commercial development and immediately adjacent to a primary SEPTA bus depot. The Plaza also extends the landscaping creating a direct connection to public transit and allowing for outdoor activities, such as a farmer’s market.
