Social club under consideration in Polish Hill: By Diana Nelson Jones / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
A proposed social club in Polish Hill at a nexus with the Strip District and Lawrenceville has been vetted by the neighborhoods and is under consideration by the Zoning Board of Adjustment after a hearing Thursday [January 17, 2013].
A social club is not a specified use in the zoning code, so a variance is needed for the Social Association of Pittsburgh Professionals to operate. The site is a former Carrier Heating and Air Conditioning warehouse at 33rd Street and Liberty Avenue.
The building is isolated from residential areas, but its potential use has some concerned.
