Building Conditions on Penn Avenue

Building Conditions on Penn Avenue

2011

We have rated the conditions of buildings along Penn Avenue on a scale of zero to three, zero being a vacant lot, one a building in bad condition, two a building in average condition, and three a building in good condition. Initial data was gathered in July 2011 by visual survey and was also correlated with data from the Allegheny County Assessment website. cityLAB's data is more recent than the Allegheny County Assessment's 2008 building condition scale, which was used in the Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation's Garfield 2030 Plan.

The condition of the buildings in the 6% Place will be updated by periodic visual surveys of the area.
