Vacant Property


Over 18 percent of Wilkinsburg’s building stock is vacant. Rather than focus on the negative aspects of blight and vacancy, the WCDC works to turn vacant spaces into opportunities to transform an empty lot to a vibrant garden, a blighted building to a growing business, and a vacant house to a home. We do this by highlighting available properties, connecting people with tools and resources, such as the Vacant Property Recovery Program, and sharing success stories.
