Mission

TODAY’S YOUNG PEOPLE WILL CREATE TOMORROW’S PROSPERITY.

Pervasive inequities prevent many children and families of color from accessing the opportunities necessary for them to fully contribute to, and benefit from, Atlanta’s growing economy.

The transformation of PITTSBURGH YARDS® is an unprecedented opportunity to spur a more equitable distribution of income, wealth, jobs and entrepreneurship opportunities for residents in Adair Park, Capitol Gateway, Mechanicsville, Peoplestown, Pittsburgh and Summerhill — often referred to as Neighborhood Planning Unit V (NPU-V) — and other southwest Atlanta neighborhoods.

Pittsburgh Yards can achieve this by:

CATALYZING LIVING-WAGE EMPLOYMENT, LONG-TERM CAREER PATHS AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS, INCLUDING PARENTS WITH YOUNG CHILDREN, YOUNG ADULTS AND THOSE IN NEED OF SECOND CHANCES

USING BUILDING DESIGN, STREETSCAPE AND LANDSCAPING TECHNIQUES TO ENCOURAGE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
AND INNOVATION

INCORPORATING SUSTAINABLE DESIGN PRINCIPLES AND BEST PRACTICES FOR ENERGY AND WATER EFFICIENCY

CULTIVATING LOCAL BENEFITS, SUCH AS ACCESS TO THE ATLANTA BELTLINE, HEALTHY FOODS, GREEN SPACE, COMMUNITY GATHERING SPACE, ARTS AND CULTURE

If you live within the NPU-V neighborhoods of Adair Park, Capitol Gateway, Mechanicsville, Peoplestown, Pittsburgh and Summerhill, or Capitol View Manor, we want to hear from you first. How do you envision bringing your talents to the office or coworking spaces at Pittsburgh Yards?
