Earlier this year, in partnership with the building's owner (Chip Desmone of Desmone Architects), Preservation Pittsburgh nominated the former Pittsburgh Wash House & Public Baths building to become a City Historic Landmark.
Preservation Pittsburgh, in partnership and support of the neighbors of the street, nominated Roslyn Place to become a City Historic District.
At Preservation Pittsburgh we strive to call attention to the importance the built world plays in our parks just as we do the role it plays downtown and in our neighborhoods. For this reason we recently nominated Schenley Park's two tufa bridges to be City Historic Landmarks.
Preservation Pittsburgh nominated the former Overbrook Municipal Building (now Accamando Center) to be a City Historic Landmark. This came out of months of researching the history of the building, the events leading to Overbrook joining the city, and working in close partnership with the Carrick-Overbrook Historical Society.
We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Pittsburgh's City Council voted unanimously to designate Howe Spring (Shady Side), Voegtly Spring (Spring Hill), and Catahecassa Spring (Schenley Park) as City Historic Landmarks.
