What are the timelines for each phase being completed?

01:05:14
Thank you for your question, we are capturing these and if not addressed through the presentation will start with these during the Q&A

If you could please mute yourself until you plan to speak, that will help reduce background noise

I live across the street from the Church lot on 43rd street out my back door. The construction is disturbing whatever rodents have been living or nesting in the vacant buildings for so many years. I had to have Bill Grill’s Exterminating Services out multiple times at a cost of $200 to my husband and I. The exterminator said before and during other developments and projects his company has been called out to bait the neighborhood and around the work site to try to eliminate any issues of rodents invading the surrounding properties and residential homes. I have lived here for almost 40years and never once had to have an exterminator at my house until the demolition began on this project. I’m wondering if there are plans for the developers to contract a company to bait the neighborhood to stop these issues. It’s not fair to the neighbors who live here and never have these issues before. I’m raising this issue here in the chat because I’m not sure if I will be able to be here all the way until 730

thanks Erica! Please do feel free to add your questions & comments here and we'll get to them in the Q&A
Lauren Connelly (she/her), Lawrenceville Corporation

Thank you - we will bring this up when we start q&a and if you are no longer here, we can follow up with you.

I similarly do not know if I can stick around until 730p. However, I do want to raise the point of noise pollution. I live directly across from the church on 44th St and the demolition noise is clearly way over the allowable decibel level in the city ordinance. Today in particular, there was a constant drilling from 7a-5p with no break. Given that most folks are still working from home due to Covid, to call the noise unbearable is an understatement. What is planned to be done to minimize construction noise given this project is in the middle of a residential area?
Lauren Connelly (she/her), Lawrenceville Corporation
01:27:55
Thank, Daniel we will bring this up.
Lauren Connelly (she/her), Lawrenceville Corporation

Is the existing roof going to remain actual slate?
Brian
01:29:58
What is the necessity of the balconies. They seem to really be the most drastic change to the historic church facade. It seems removing the balconies will make the church feel more intact
Laura Everhart
01:30:42
44th is quite a busy street - I live up a few blocks - are there any plans to help with traffic mitigation since the occupants of these homes will also experience the traffic and noise? Thank you.
Brian
01:31:17
Is the concrete facade going to be removed and replaced? The church hasn’t been involved in a decade so why is this an issue? Its removing a major historic element
Brian
01:32:23
What is the necessity of widening the existing windows?
Bill Carter
01:32:47
This is for Ryan.... Would anyone lose any view of the bell tower or the front and back of the elevations? I may be late to the table, but are the inside condos rentals or purchases?
Marc Patti
01:35:24
Thanks for stopping by to take our questions. The brick facades look great!Are there any plans to preserve the three original murals painted on the church ceiling?
Marc Patti
01:39:30
Yep!
Marc Patti
01:40:19
Thanks so much!
Bruce Chan
01:48:41
To clarify. 5 affordable for-sale units.
Dave Breingan
01:48:53
Correct, Bruce
Tim
01:49:47
Seriously though please have someone bait the place better for rodents.Parking is very tight now that half of it has been removed on summit st. Especially when the bowling alley is open on 44th. Is there something we can do to not have non residents parking on summit and 44th? It’s been very hard to find close parking
Bruce Chan
01:51:02
Would Emeka be amenable to MORE street trees, espeically on 43rd and 44th?
Bill Carter
01:51:17
What is the preliminary name for this development? Will the diocese allow for a "Holy Family" name/recognition? Maybe something that is indicative of what the former site once stood for.
Carol Schultz
01:51:46
Thank you for this presentation. As a former member of HF church (and graduate of the school), it will be a pleasure to see the church structure kept mostly intact and the location be put to use.
Tim
01:51:46
I’m talking about parking now
Tim
01:52:24
Yes thank you
Tim
01:53:01
They put up no parking signs on half of summit
Barbara Bzdziak
01:53:03
What about electrical and water service? How much disruption can we expect once that gets going? I live 43rd & Summit
Tim
01:53:07
That’s the problem
Lauren Connelly (she/her), Lawrenceville Corporation
01:53:21
Any questions not answered will be forwarded to the development team and we can collect answers and include those in the notes for follow up to everyone.

Construction workers are parking on the site not summit street

To the extent you're able/willing, Preservation Pittsburgh would love to remain updated/informed about the historic church facade restorations/detail replacements. Perhaps we can be supportive/helpful. Thank you.
brittany reilly
01:54:25
How similar or dissimilar is the brick masonry of the new units to that of the existing church masonry?
Laura Everhart
01:54:51
Thank you for the presentation! These plans look really good and I’m glad to see the church building will still be in place.
Bruce Chan
01:55:47
IS this part recorded?
Bruce Chan
01:56:20
Is this part on Facebook LIve? the feedback part?
Bruce Chan
01:57:24
Thanks!
Tim
02:03:25
Any idea when we will be able to park on the right side of summit street again? They put up no parking signs on that side a month or two ago
Tim
02:04:10
Thank you!
Bruce Chan
02:05:59
80% AMI for 10% of units. Confirming?
Bruce Chan
02:06:39
AMI = area median income of the city of Pittsburgh.
Bruce Chan
02:07:08
Thanks Dave!
Bruce Chan
02:08:08
