Module Completes Black Street Project in Pittsburgh

Brian Gaudio, Module’s CEO, a Pittsburgh, PA based modular home developer, has just completed installing the boxes for the company’s Black Street project in Garfield, PA near the heart of the city.

The project includes one market-rate house, one affordable home and one duplex.

The Module houses were constructed off-site at Structural Modular's factory about 90 minutes north of Pittsburgh, and shipped to Garfield, where they were lifted onto their foundations, made weather-tight and ready for final finish.

“Our homes are designed for the 21st-century customer,” says Module CEO Brian Gaudio. “The reality is a lot of Americans don’t live in a nuclear family. It might be a single-person household, might be a single-parent household, it might be an aging baby boomer. These folks aren’t really being served by the big traditional homebuilders.”

The Black Street project, a partnership with the URA and Bloomfield Garfield Corporation, features four homes: One duplex serves as the model home, while another allows a buyer to live above and rent below. One of the units will be a market-rate home for sale — with three bedrooms, 2.5 baths and an integral garage. The other unit is a two-bedroom, 1.5-bath unit that will be sold to a buyer who makes 80% or less of the median income in Pittsburgh.

A 'tip of the hat' to Brian and Module for bringing the first of what I'm sure will be many affordable modular homes to Pittsburgh.
