Community Center Construction Ongoing
In March 2010, renovation of the Nyia Page Braddock Community Center, located at 416 Library Street, began. Renovations will allow Braddock residents year-round use of a building that has until now only functioned as a community center in the spring and summer. The renovation includes installation of new windows and stained glass, heating, and plumbing, and repairs to the electric system and the roof. Completion is anticipated in Fall 2010.
We would like to give a huge thank you Levi Strauss and Co. as well as the Allegheny County DCED for providing us with the support and momentum necessary to make this long awaited rennovation a reality. Braddock Redux will be able to expand our program with local youth and begin programming with senior citizens.
