The Allegheny County Housing Authority plans to begin demolishing 80-year-old Hawkins Village apartments in January, agency executive director Frank Agazio told public sources.
Authorities boardResolved at a monthly meeting to submit a slightly revised application to the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development must approve the dismantling. The authorities’ initial application did not mention some of the meetings with residents in 2019. Aggazio said he expects the HUD to be approved “within a few days.”
Rankin’s Hawkins Village has 196 apartments. Aggazio said in an email to PublicSource that all residents were “relocated and properly contained.” Some are in other public housing and others are in private units that accept vouchers.
He said that after the entire complex was demolished, about 110 new apartments would be built in two stages with a total cost of estimated $ 37 million.
