What is now the dilapidated, vacant Kirkwood Hotel will soon become a $40 million hotel, office and retail development in the center of East Liberty. The six-story Kirkwood will be restored to a 135-room boutique hotel. There will be an additional five buildings being restored and one being built on the block between Highland Avenue and Broad, Kirkwood and Whitfield streets. The post gazette covers the project in more detail.
The development is a partnership between Morgan Development Group and mossArchitects. Take a look at some of the planning sketches.

I was looking thru my great grandmother’s address book, and her daughter (my grandmother) address was listed there. This would have probably been in the 1930′s. I decided to do a google image search for the address and this is what I found. Interesting.
