The final financial piece of a $7 million development — called The Shops at Doughboy — to be located in lower Lawrenceville was approved Thursday by the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County.
Its principals are October Development and Kris Senko of Senko Construction.
The development will consist of a four and a half story building with retail on the first level and residential units above.
“We have a March 1 construction date and there will be 13 condomiums in the building, Senko said.
Paul Svoboda, special projects manager for the Pittsburgh Urban Redevelopment Authority, which requested the grant, said the property is on a slope and the funds will be used for site work.
Svoboda said discussions are continuing with the community to determine the design of the building. Previously, the project received a $1 million state Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grant.
