UPTOWN PROJECT

Pittsburgh’s Uptown, formerly known as Soho, has been declining for many years, but hopefully will begin anew under a variety of rejuvenation projects. Pittsburgh guidebooks formerly noted the area as being “old and not attractive” however through the 1970’s the area was noted as being “a pleasant neighborhood, that suffered as industry moved, the wealthy moved out.” The neighborhood has been adversly affected by many of Pittsburgh’s Urban Renewal campaigns, and that Uptown has never been able to reestablish itself. Uptown is the next step of a more unified Pittsburgh, extending from the outlying neighborhoods to the underused downtown area. Uptown should be an area where a tightly knit residential community can be in close proximity to a strong commercial area, meeting any potential needs of the residents.

PN1.00

PROJECT NARRATIVE

The focus of the project is 2024 Fifth Ave. Located in the LNC zoning of Uptown. The zoning code gives the opportunity to provide a mixed use building directly on a main road of the area. The first floor of the building will be commercial, providing office, retail, or specialty goods space. The remaining two floors and basement will be renovated into a single family home. Commercial and economic growth coupled with a greater living environment will help to foster a greater sense of community between residents and businesses in the area. Renovation of existing buildings will help preserve much of the historic significance that is found in the area. The expansion of residential space will attract new young families to the area with the intent of providing a community where families want to place roots and stay rather than be seen as a temporary housing need.


ACTION UPTOWN: CONNECT UPTOWN

ARC48_550

IMPLEMENTATION

Based on a projected development of three different phases of revitalization for the area, the project aims to fit into the initial stage through a new commercial program. The first phase of rejuvination places a focus on strengthening the core residential district of the neighborhood. Building up the residential base and fostering a community identity are key to segway into the second phase. Phase two focuses on the missing aspects of the neighborhood, and providing the opportunity for gaps in the community to be filled by new business and buildings. Phase three is the most important for the Uptown area because of its location in the Greater Pittsburgh Area. Expanding connectivity to neighboring districts is the final step, and will help to sustain the new environment and businesses brougt into the Uptown area. There is the opportunity to connect to the two largest economic bases in Pittsburgh, Downtown and Oakland, which will bring in more pedestrian and automotive traffic,

giving new life to this area and finally uplifting it from several unsuccessful Pittsburgh Urban Renewal projects. Focusing our demographic research on services and amenities, it will be beneficial to place a commercial program on the ground level space facing Fifth Avenue. The design will focus on providing flexible space to allow for a range of commercial activities. Meanwhile, the residential half of the building is able to focus towards Watson Street and the core residential district of Uptown. The shifts in the building allow there to be a front to back divide that can help to promote both a residential and commercial area while inhabitating the same space.

The Uptown, or more specifically Bluff neighborhood is flanked on either side by two vary different communities. To the east is the community of Oakland and to the west is the Central Business District (CBD). Oakland has both the highest employment rate and population. The statistics from the CBD show that few people actually live there, with most only go there during the work day. Uptown sits in an interesting spot seeing a lot of traffic between the two neighborhoods, where most peole needing to get to the CBD pass through the neighborhood.

The comparison chart above shows the Uptown neighborhood with the city and county that it is situated in. It is clear that Uptown has a large increase in unoccupied properties, as well as homeowners. This shows a need for a stronger perminant population and homeownership community. The median income values and home values show that any comercial implimentations need to be viable for a the lower income community present in Uptown.

There are very few properties that are worth more than $100,000 and it is very much in line with the other demographic data about the people and residents in the neighborhood. It is interesting to note that there is no difference in property value between lots located on 5th and other lots on some of the smaller side streets.

Environment SUMMER

During the winter months, the southern facade recieves a good amount of light with minimal areas in complete shade. The rear of the house is in sun for the entirety of the winter, allowing for an extended area for outdoor living or an area to take advantage of solar gain. The wind comes from the west and northwest. The building lies in the wind shadow of winds coming from the west but is exposed to those coming from the northwest.

TTake advantage of the exposed southern faces of the building to use passive solar enrgy to offset heating costs of the house. Outdoor living can be extended by occupying the roof on the southern half of the house. On the north and northwest areas of the house, high performance windows should be installed to reduce infiltration from winter winds. A vestibule may also help this for both the residence and commercial area.

The following are features allowed within setbacks in Section 925.06. of Pittsburgh Municipility Code. They can be taken into consideration especially while designing the front facade and backyard: - natural growth that do not obstruct vehicular sight distances - bay windows, architectural design embellishments and cantilevered floow areas of dwellings that do not project more than 2’ into the required setback - open outside stairways or fire escapes that do not project more than 4’ into a required side or rear yard - entrance hoods, terraces, canopies and balconies that do not project more than 5’ into a required front or rear setback nor more than 2’ into the required setback - open structures such as porches, decks or landing places which do not extend above the first floor of the building, with railing no more than 42” high and with no roof construction measuring more than 4’ from the underside of the supporting plate to the top of the roof

Looking at the existing condition of the site and building, the site area has not been used to its full potential, both in floor area and lot coverage. There are a lot of parking lots close to the site, relieving pressure for off- street parking, which can be kept to a minimum. so it does not block passerbys’ view to the building facades.

Fifth Avenue is a well traveled street with multiple bus routes passing along, while Watson Street is a smaller scale alleyway with most backyards facing it.

Setback and Utilization As a detached, mixed-use typology, the house is attached to the building to the left and is situated next to a vacant lot to the right. There are no side setbacks and the house completely fills up the lot. The house is set 38 inches back in the front and the front steps meet up to the lot boundary. In the back there is a setback of 55 feet and is used as a backyard and driveway. There is ample space in the back of the unit as well as adjacent to the vacant lot.The vacant lot however is owned by a seperate owner and will not be available for use.

There is a lot of oppurtunity inmodifying both the front and back facades of the house to start engaging the community in a more positive manner. With consideration to changing the house from purely residential to a mixed-used typpology, a lot can can be done to open up the front of the house. With consideration to the residential aspect the rear setback start to be utilized to maximize neighbor to neighbor connections as well as giving back more spacet to the residents.

SITE UTILIZATION The house is mostly compliant with LNC land-use stipulations on all facades. The code requires a maximum lot coverage of at least 90%, however with a rear setback of 55 feet it is not completely utilizing the space. It is currently using the rear space as a backyard that is not finished or designed. All other setbacks and requirements are being met. With all these limitations and regulations in mind, there are a lot of oppurtunities to redesign the back area of the lot. With no sideyard setbacks required , it would also be beneficial to consider a better maintenance of the overgrown plants in the adjacent empty lot. Though the rear setback is not maximizing the usable space it does provide the house with a green space and street nonstreet parking. The yard is currently gated off and overgrown similar to the empty lot. There is a small landing with stairs coming from the basement level which is 3 feet above grade. Pavers in the ground allowed a vehicle to be parked without sinking into the ground. The yard continues along the west side of the building through a partial alley space that meets with a stair to a side entrance to the first floor.

Backyard from Watson St.

Pavers in ground

Having a front setback allows space for an addition to extend 3.5â&#x20AC;&#x2122; over the sidewalk for a storefront awning or porch area. The rear setback provides an opportunity for a more private space for the occupants with connectivity to their neighbors and Watson Street. The building is able to expan westward to fill the side entrance area to create a larger programatic space without extending and removing backyard space from the occupants.

SITE DEVIATION 2024 Fifth Avenue is consistent with the building typology in the area. All but one building in the area have three floors meeting a flat or gable roof. The roof line is either kept continuous or broken by a gable window. The facade material extends from sidewalk to roof line, or breaks at the third floor and begins to be a shingled roofing. Windows in the area are dependent on the where the entry is located. If the door is on the right third of the building then there is a pair of windows located on the other two thirds of the building which continues from the first floor to the thrid. Above the door are single windows in line with the other but centered on the right third of the facade. Storefront windows are also used to take up the space that a pair of windows would occupy in the previous condition, but only on the first floor. Doors range in the are from being on street level to raised up on a stoop. Many of the mixed use buildings have a residential door raised up on a stoop to distinguish it from the commercial entrance. Commercial doors are primarily metal with bars to protect the goods inside. Few of the doors have any form of awning, with only the few newer construction or renovated buildings having any form of effective cover. Stoops in the area range from one to four steps and are primarily concrete. Large stringers act as boundries on many of the steps, but there are some that are only the treads. Railings exist on very few of the stairs and are if present only exist along one side of the steps. Most stoops are broken down and showing the wear of years of exposure.

STOOP TYPE

The range of building elements in the area allows a future design to choose from a wide variety of primary design elements to act as a guideline for what will best fit in the overall typology of the neighborhood. Renovation without a major change to the consistency in the neighborhood

EXTERIOR AND NEIGHBORHOOD CONDITIONS

Boarded up and broken windows

The immediate area surrounding the project building contains a variety of buildings including empty lots, abandoned homes, renovations, and new construction. Many of the empty lots and abandoned buildings could be utilized for future development. Existing buildings range from being in a very poor condition to newly renovated. The newly renovated buildings are effective at drawing in potential residents from neighboring areas. The remaining buildings in less than great condition provide ample opportunity for young professionals looking for an area to live close to the activity of downtown. Small moments of beautification can be found throughout the area in murals and street art. These can be attributed to the green movement occurring in the area, to help provide trash cans and eliminate much of the garbage dirtying the area. The existing brick enclosure of 2024 Fifth is in usable condition even though the building has been abandoned. Any windows on the first floor have been boarded up to prevent any unwanted residents. The neighboring empty lot is overgrown and unusable in its current condition. The backyard is overgrown as well preventing immediate use and development. Much of the wall shared with the empty lot is covered in moss and creeping vines adding to the uncontrolled growth of vegetation within the lot. The backyard of the building has stone pavers placed for a vehicle to drive onto while keeping some grass growing and maintaining a backyard environment. Meters are located on the rear wall below the basement entrance which is raised an additional several feet above grade.

Entrance stairs are missing railing

There are opportunities present in the surrounding area to use 2024 Fifth Avenue as a starting point for continued growth and connection through out Uptown. The enclosure of the building is able to be used for future renovation without extensive adjustment. This allows the first floor to be opened up to create a store front for a mixed use biulding keeping a connection to the existing building typology in the Uptown LNC district. There are key ares along Forbes Avenue, Watson Street, and Fifth Avenue that can have a greater connection through through the future mixed use program of the 2024 lot.

INTERIOR BUILDING CONDITIONS The interior of the building is in stable condition. The previous owners had the building converted into two seperate apartments, one on the first floor, the other occupying the second and third floors. A partition wall was built in the first floor hallway to use the entry as the transition space between the apartments. Trash is scattered through out all floors of the building. Many of the doors have been removed and the plaster is chipped and falling off the walls. The kitchen on the first floor is missing all of the copper pipes and has suffered from water damage on the ceiling and floor. The stacked stairs leading through the building are missing supports for the railings and some of the siding between the second and third floor. The second floor has two bedrooms, two mixed use rooms, a full bathroom, and a kitchen. Bedrooms on the second floor have windows facing North, but to get from the hallway to the second bedroom, an occupant must travel through the first bedroom. Each of the mixed use rooms have a non operable fireplace and mantle with south and east facing windows. There is a third floor only on the Northern half of the building consisting of two rooms. There is a large living room with a closet facing south and the other room, facing North, takes up the entire width of the building. The North facing room is filled with trash and appears to have been used as a bedroom. There is damage to the ceiling in the hallway connecting the stairs to these two rooms. The building has a basement that is primarily used as storage with two electric meters in the basement: one for the first floor and the second for the second and third floors. The basement has a door that leads to the backyard and Watson Street.

KITCHEN CONDITIONS Large appliances have all been removed leaving uncapped pipes in the floor and unpainted wall areas

The existing windows and walls help program the rooms for future use, and establish where the most renovation work is needed. Circulation through the building is kept along the west wall forcing the program to be heavy along one side without room to expand. The damage to floors, walls, circulation, and plumbing allows freedom to readjust program and floor heights to meet the new needs of the mixed use program and freedom to create a new circulation path.

MATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTION Like many houses in Pittsburgh built in the early 20th century, 2024 Fifth Ave. is constructed using bricks and wood. The existing building has double cavity brick walls, which also acts as structure for the house. The row house is structurally independent of the houses that it sits next to, which is true for many of the row houses in this neighborhood. On the front facade, glass blocks are used to allow light to enter into the basement. Wood framing is used inside of the brick walls as a secondary structure. Due to the age of the home, there is no additional insulation in the walls and the home relies on the thermal qualities of the bricks for insulation.

11 12

DETAILS 13

The house has a number of details that make the it unique amongst the residences it abuts and the others in the Uptown Neighborhood. Among these characteristics are the brick cornice details, mansard roof, and two different sized dormers. For the brick cornice, the bricks are cantilevered over one another to create an area for a gutter and the larger dormer. The mansard roof is found on the adjacent buildings but is less common in other parts of the neighborhood where gable roofs are most popular. The nature of the roof allows for more livable area on the top floor of the house. Many of the houses in the area have two identical dormers however, this house is asymmetrical in this area. The larger and smaller dormer create a different character of the house and make the space inside more interesting.

Mechanical Systems

1910

The original heating system for 2024 Fifth AVE was a gas radiator system. The radiators were usually located in front of windows to offset the cold air infiltrating. However, much of the heat produced by the radiator escaped to the cold window, thus proving inefficient.

With the renovation of the residence, the existing duct work can be used to heat the building, although the furnace will have to be replaced with a more efficient one.

2012

1970

Passive Systems Solar

The location of the house allows for uniterrupted southern light. This can be taken advantage of to help offset winter heating bills. A shading device installed in the rear of the house blocks summer sunlight while allowing for winter light to enter the house. The heat from the winter sun is absorbed through the concrete floor and is radiated out during the evening hours after the sun has set.

Thermal Mass

Cooling

Passive cooling can be used to help cool and ventialte the house in the hot, stuffy summer months. Winds coming from the west enter the open stair volume creating negative pressure. This pressure pulls air up from inside the house, creating a breeze throughout the house.

CASE STUDY TYPOLOGY HOUSE The main case study house is located on 2024 Fifth avenue. Similar to a lot of houses in the area, it is a row house built in the early 20th century with 6 beds and 1 bathroom with a mansard roof. It is a typical row houses, situated on a lot 22’ wide and 90’ in length. The specific house sits between Fifth avenue and Watson Street with a garden of rear setback of around 54 feet. Pros: The connected row houses create a human- scale street wall that encloses the block on its two long sides, transforming the street into an inviting “public room” and each house has a door that leads into that communal room. A notch connecting the front and back of the house brings in southern light during the day. The upper floors on the rear also have expansive views to the South Side. Cons: Row houses are historically notorious for its dimensions, making it difficult for good interior planning. The party walls are thin at 1 ft and with minimal insulation which fail to insulate sounds from adjacent units. Although the common walls on the two sides help to insulate the house, it is important to add insulation to the roof and exposed walls. The southern portion of the house recieves most light but is where most of the service spaces are currently placed. It will be beneficial to push the main living spaces towards this facade for optimal lighting. The existing rear setback is 55’ but the backyard is overgrown and not usable, trimming overgrown plants and implementing paving and furniture will make it a usable space.

Fifth Avenue is a major transportation corridor with heavy flow of private and public vehicles every day. On the North facing side of the street it is lined with a series of houses. Programmatically most of these houses provide residential use at certain extents. Mansard roofs are the most common along the street, and a few newer constructions adopts a flat roof. Stoops are also present on all the buildings but they come in different forms; most are externalised but some are more integrated into the entry way. The dormers present the most variations, from the number found on each house to their sizes and shapes. There are also potential to develop the overgrown lots in between existing buildings if ownership allows. Two lots that were previously built are currently converted into parking lots, providing parking spots for future commercial use.

CONCLUSION

Mixed use residential is not taken full advantage of since thre are less mixed use residential than single family housing found along Fifth Avenue. The existing house has two dormers of different sizes which is unique on this street and neighborhood. There is a continuous strata formed by the change in material or change in window sizes that suggests a continuity along the first floor of the houses. This can be a potential design consideration to create interesting facade identity and interesting interior space. PROJECT SCOPE: TYPOLOGY CASE STUDY AND PRECEDENT

The design is not LEED- certified, which eliminates unnecessary fees involved in LEED paperwork and documenting. Nevertheless, sustainable strategies are used, such as radiant heat flooring, solar water heating, a whole house fan, spray foam insulation and maximizing daylight by cutting big skylights into the playroom and kids’ bathroom and opening a thrid of the rear wall. Materials are re-purposed whenever possible, such as the “Juliet’ balconies on the rear facade.This is a good precedent to look at regarding how it is designed to cater for sustainable living space in order to reduce energy costs and fulfill grants and green tax rebate requirements, such as the Keystone HELP Loan that offers up to $25,000 for single measure installed enery home improvements, including heating and cooling systems, water heaters, windows and doors, insulation etc.

The Galley house is an extreme case of narrow town houses with a site 16 ft by 62 ft with clear width dimensions of less than 12 ft, almost half of what our existing site is. Due to the municipal code restraints, there are no windows on the side faces. A double- height family room that opens to the street is implemented to bring in more light. The use of an open plan and open riser staircase also create a more spacious interior. We are looking to this example to use double storey spaces in order to open up the living space towards Watson Street in hope to create a better community along the alleyway.

The Galley house sits within a narrow alley between two existing houses

Uptown filling the gap between neighborhoods

The neighborhood of Uptown is located in an interesting place, wedged between the two active communities of Downtown and Oakland. Looking at how the community could develop, four stages might characterize the change that comes to the area. First, the residential community and core needs to be strengthened. This can start to happen through the vacant lots being filled in, houses becoming renovated, and a large homeowner population growth. The key to building a neighborhood is having residents invested in it. Connection between residents helps to strengthen the neighborhood and help it grow. All of these factors are important to building a more stable and solid neighborhood with a focus on the community. The retention of our site as a residential buiding becomes very important to help promote this idea. Strengthen Residential Core

Bring New Amenities

Branch to Other Neighborhoods

While the residential population grows and becomes more stable, new amenities are brough to the area through shops, services, and other comercial spaces. These will not only attract more people and families to live there, but also help to draw visitors from each neighboring community (Oakland and Downtown). The addition of a residential space into our building and site would also eventually help to add some sort of new amenity to the main circulation street of Fifth Ave. Finally in the growth process after Uptown has cultivated an active and full residential and comercial population, it can fully live up to its potential as a key part of the Downtown-Uptown-Oakland strip. At a macro scale, the missing gap between the two more developed neighborhoods can be filled and seen as an asset. residential rooftop terrace for a private, open space

View of 2024 along Fifth Ave.

On a smaller scale, the site of 2024 Fifth Ave is at an important place that connects two very distinct streetscapes. On the north end is Fifth Ave which can hold a comercial space. Providing the community with an amenity as well as provide a destination for those traveling by is important to Uptown as a whole. On the south end of the lot, there is Watson Street. The smaller scale and quieter street is perfect for neighbor to neighbor connections. The back of the house has the potential to open up to the backyard and street to create a community space. The strength of the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residential core depends upon spaces like Watson street to cultivate family connections.

Watson Street

PROJECT SCOPE: PROPOSAL

CONLCUSION

The building and design should act as a link between these two streets and help to promote both the larger scale Uptown community and the smaller scale neighborhood community. The section on the previous page shows how it could start to do this. Essential core spaces should be kept to the center of the building and both the north and south ends should open up to the streets. The south end should also have the ability to close up if privacy is wanted, and also visually and physically open for the family to entertain and have a presence in the smaller community on Watson.

A proposed view from the rooftop garden looking south accross the river, to the community of Southside

In addition to visually connecting all of the floors, and providing a way for light to reach some of the more closed off spaces in the house, the stairwell acts as a passive cooling system in the hot summer months. A phenomenon known as the stack effect helps to cool the air in the house. Windows down on the first floor are open to let cool, fresh air in. The sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy heats up this air causing it to rise. As the air rises up to the top of the stairwell where it can escape, it draws in air from the the rest of the house from the pressure differetnial. This effect is greatly increased when the windows located at the top of the stair are open from west to east to allow for westwardly winds to draw the hot air up and out of the house quicker. Increased air circualtion throughout the building is a result of the open stairwell.

Operable Windows

The roof will act as a rain water collection system. The water that isnt used by the green roof drains further to the ground to a gray water collection barrel. This water can be used by the residents to water plants, wash things off, or any other basic need besides consumption.

Available Rainwater Collection

Multiple passive systems will be implimented to save the family money on heating and water cost. Any water to fall on the roof will eventually be directed down to the green portion of the rooftop terrace. This sustainable garden holds a large amount of water putting less burden on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storm drainage system, as well as providing an ideal living space for the residents.

The front facade of commercial space aims to open up to the busy Fifth Ave. corridor. The small commercial space has a large glass facade that invites passerbys to enter the space. The awning also creates a welcoming environment for visitors. The commerical space can act in partnership with other entities such as Start Uptown to foster the growth of small businesses. Success stories such as No Wait may have the opportunity to move out of the Start Uptwon office into their own commercial space on Fifth Ave.

REAR FACADE ASSEMBLY The rear facade of the house seeks to implement the connection to Watson Street to the South. To do this a large puncture was made in the existing wall and a series of new windows were inserted while respecting the existing geometry set up by the house. The numerous windows not only create a visual connection to the backyard and Watson Street but also open to extend the dining and living area of the house to the outside. To use this space in the summer time, a shading system was implemented to provide adequate shade during the hottest times of the year.

CONLCUSION

The large cost of the construction of the house could potentially cause issues with coming up with an affordable payment plan for a family making the median income of Alleheney County. This monetary gap is offset with the income that the renting out of the commercial space gives to the family. As seen from the proposed monthly budget for the family, they gain a savings of around $900 per month, and are able to afford the mortgage payments.

Growth of the Uptown community is already beginning to happen, and the community’s built environment is beginning to form a new identity. Action Housing is ready to develop more properties so that the residential community can help shape the direction of the neighborhood. Our design transforms a typical row house, common in the neighborhood, and begins to create a built environment that fosters neighbor to neighbor relationships where the community matters. The house’s backyard acts as a social “front yard” facing towards the small scale Watson Street, while the front of the house becomes a space for new businesses to grow. Not only does this house serve a single family who makes the median income of the county, but it also uses passive environmental technologies to lower the maintenance costs of day to day living. On a larger scale, 5th Avenue is on its way to being revived and restored back to a fully commercial corridor. With the start of one nice commercial space like our project, more begin to fill in and really smoothen out the transition from Oakland on the east to Downtown on the west. The gap between the two successful neighborhoods will be filled, eventually creating a larger area where people feel safe and comfortable to visit, work, and live. The community of Uptown will be socially and physically connected to the thriving parts of Pittsburgh, and the individual family will be a connection holding together the smaller residential community.
