Pitt's Oakland Bakery & Market are considering having more grocery store components. Their ultimate goal is for it to become somewhat like a food co-op, but more ingrained.
They want to know about residents' interests and concerns about having this kind of store available in Oakland.

The Duquesne University Small Business Development Center is pleased to announce that it is offering Work for Yourself@50
+ workshops in our community.
AARP Foundation’s Work for Yourself@50
+ will help low- and moderate-income adults age 50+ gain the knowledge, support, and resources they need to make informed decisions and take the right first steps toward successful self-employment. The 90-minute workshop will walk participants through the Work for Yourself@50
+ materials and connect them with local resources to help them reach their goals.
The first workshop will be offered on Wednesday, November 30th , at 5:00pm-6:30pm at the Carnegie Library in Homewood.
The first image is of another development at Bakery Square. The idea for Wakefield St is to be similar offset buildings and recessed garages to minimize their visual impact, but the "look" should be less modern and in context with South Oakland.
Attached are some initial sketches of a proposed development for the current first five lots at Wakefield St and Ward St. Additionally, the developer notes that based on the existing building on the corner lot "is three stories high, and the first floor is slightly elevated. Conservatively, I’d say the ridge is at 30’ above grade. The highest building we have would be 10’ lower at street level, and we are limited to code to 40’."
So "the building height of the highest building would not be any taller than the existing one" and "they would be further to the left, and drop down" further down Wakefield toward the shrine area.

Help those in need in the community by cooking, assembling, and delivering food to feed the hungry on Thanksgiving Day. This year, we expect to feed approximately 3,500 residents in the City of Pittsburgh. Donations can be made up to Thanksgiving day, but donations are always accepted so even after Thanksgiving it would still go towards the program.
