The Edge at South Side awarded $2M state grant


Redevelopment grant funds totaling more than $2 million will be used to support the Edge at South Side project, Sen. Jay Costa (D-Allegheny) and Rep. Jake Wheatley (D-Allegheny) announced.

The $2.5 million grant for the project was approved through the state’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP).

“This grant provides an opportunity to revitalize the riverfront on the South Side, continuing the efforts that have been ongoing for a number of years,” Sen. Costa said. “The project brings new investment to South Side while maintaining the historic character of the neighborhood.”

Funding awarded to the project will be used for the development of office, retail and residential space as well as exterior building improvements and investments in multimodal infrastructure including bike and automobile parking.

“This grant award is exciting news for the city,” Rep. Wheatley said. “This project will expand and upgrade the existing location and help retain and attract new businesses to the South Side.”
