Hampton Inn (4520 Penn Ave) Community Meeting

A new 115-room Hampton Inn hotel is being built at 4520 Penn Avenue. The development team of M.P. Kratsas is appearing before the City’s Contextual Design Advisory Panel (CDAP), which has requested the community’s comments prior to the CDAP review.

Bloomfield Development Corporation will not provide comment to CDAP on the design without first hearing from the community, and the developer agreed during the zoning process that a community meeting on the design would be a priority.

As part of our Community Process for New Developments, Bloomfield Development Corp. invites you to a community meeting on Monday, February 19, 6:30pm at the West Penn Hospital Nursing School (4900 Friendship Ave, at the corner of Gross/Friendship) to hear a presentation from the development team and to ask questions.

If you have any questions, contact Bloomfield Development at info@bloomfieldnow.org or call 412-681-8800. An accessible entrance is located in the rear of the building.

Meeting Notes for 4401 Liberty Ave (Shursave) Community Forum

On Monday, January, 29 at 6:30 PM, roughly 400 people (365 sign-ins) packed into the auditorium of the West Penn Hospital Nursing School to learn about the proposed development at 4401 Liberty Ave and to express their concerns. Having a grocery store and affordability on the site were top community priorities, but attendees also voiced concerns about the proposed development’s design and its impact on issues such as parking and traffic. The developers, Milhaus, will adjust their plans to try to address this feedback in advance of a second community meeting. The links below are to the notes from the meeting, the developer’s presentation and traffic study, and phone/email comments from local residents and business owners. (Note: a slightly adjusted traffic study may be forthcoming.)
