Grand Opening of Heritage Highlands (Formerly Hawkins Village)!

Mistick Construction recently celebrated the grand opening of Heritage Highlands, marking the successful completion of Hawkins Village Phase I redevelopment project in Rankin, PA. This transformative initiative revitalizes the former Hawkins Village public housing community, bringing new life to the suburbs of Pittsburgh. 

The two-phase redevelopment will deliver 105 brand-new, high-quality affordable homes, a state-of-the-art community building, and an array of on-site supportive services and amenities across the expansive 18.8-acre site. The $20 million first phase, launched in June 2022, comprises 54 units nestled in 19 two-story buildings. These units offer a mix of one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom townhouses. 
Following the resounding success of the initial phase, the $22 million second phase will introduce 51 additional units across 21 two-story townhouse-style buildings, presenting a diverse range of one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom living spaces. A key highlight of Heritage Highlands is the centrally located community green space, a hub for safe and open gatherings, playground activities, and friendly basketball competitions, fostering a sense of community among residents and neighbors alike. 

This project is dedicated to affordability, with homes available at 20% to 60% of the Area Median Income, translating to approximately $880 for a one-person household. Out of the 105 units, twenty-nine are designated as replacement public housing and benefit from ACC subsidy support. Every resident at Heritage Highlands has access to the community building, featuring on-site maintenance, supportive services, a resident lounge, and versatile amenity spaces. 

Hawkins Village, originally constructed in 1941 to accommodate World War II veterans, has evolved into Heritage Highlands through the collaborative efforts of Pennrose, Falbo Group, LLC & ACHA. LGA Partners, LP served as the architect and Mistick was the General Contractor under the leadership of Project Manager, Jake Rosenberger. Phase I of this development has resulted in 72,095 square feet of meticulously crafted townhomes and a 4,517-square-foot Community Building, solidifying Heritage Highlands as a testament to community-focused, affordable housing development in Rankin, PA.
