Now that the anchor tenant has been announced, we understand that the developer will be looking to apply for approvals this fall. We will be sharing plans as they become available publicly, and we are developing our concerns and how to get answers. We encourage you to reach out and submit your concerns and questions. Please e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We can't promise you a speedy response (see jobs, family. etc above), but we will look to compile the commentary that we receive to include in the community feedback.
We have three key points that we want to move forward:
- Incorporate affordable housing into the former Penn Plaza site that can be inclusive of the East Liberty/East End community, and which promotes a diversity of income, age, gender, and race as the heart of a healthy community
- Ensure that the highest quality public space is maintained and developed with the East Liberty community in mind
- Ensure that the development is compatible with the existing community, both in terms of the built environment of the community and the shared vision/values of the community
