Overbrook School project update
Valcott will hold a community meeting on June 30 at 6 p.m. to provide updates on the Overbrook School project. The meeting will be held in Classroom 110 at the Overbrook School Building, 2140 Saw Mill Run Boulevard.
According to Valcott’s website, in January of 2013 the company purchased the former Overbrook School, along the northern Route 51 corridor in Overbrook. They had planned to convert the existing school building into a 91-bed personal care home to service the neighborhoods of Overbrook, Brookline, Carrick, and other parts of the South Hills.
Valcott planned to develop the land adjacent to the building into a 50-unit independent living building, Overbrook Senior Living, with shared services between both buildings including therapy and dining available daily.
The website says they will utilize the existing transportation services of the T and busway and construct a new pedestrian bridge at the northern end of the property to allow residents to access shopping and other amenities available along the transportation lines. A limited number of parking spaces and a “kiss-and-ride” will also be made available for commuters to use the public transportation services.
