Out of the Furnace: Activating Braddock into the Future

178 views

Published on

Despite being left behind by commercial activity, threatened with a limited access thruway, and losing 90% of its peak population, the community of Braddock, PA, has decided to foster growth and encourage and welcome new development. This course will review the recent history of Braddock to include a focus on the leaders, investors, tools, and examples critical to the restoration of hope in this urban context.

Presenters will describe the principles, challenges, and methods upon which this revitalization has relied. The resiliency of Braddock’s community in crafting a welcoming vision for its future required developers interested in good design and a community welcoming incremental investment. At the end of the course, attendees will be more knowledgeable about ways to improve communities that have lacked reinvestment for decades. The course will be followed by a tour of Braddock in the upcoming months led by some of the panel participants.
