"Sci-Tek Consultants, Inc. and the Homewood Station Senior Apartments"
S&A Homes, a real estate developer acting on behalf of The Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh, retained Sci-Tek to perform two tasks associated with the Homewood Senior Station Apartments Project: (1) Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) update for three parcels and (2) Phase I ESA for 28 adjacent lots all associated with this mixed-use project. The Phase I ESA update provided, at minimum, a new site reconnaissance, interviews, and an updated records review to the previous Phase I ESA reports submitted by Sci-Tek in June of 2010 and October of 2011. These environmental clearances provided the way to proceed with groundbreaking activities that officially occured on December 18, 2012.
The Homewood Station Senior Apartments is an $11.5 million, mixed-used development project that will provide seniors with 41 new residential units. The Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA) included this project on their list of "Greatest Hits of 2012". Located in the Homewood section of the City of Pittsburgh, this complex will provide Pennsylvanian seniors with quality affordable housing with world class amenities. The four-story building will include ground floor commercial space for neighborhood businesses, as well as a cafe'.
Completion of the initial phase is anticipated for December 2013.
