revitalization efforts in wilkinsburg / by Maranie Staab

i met mario today while on assignment in wilkinsburg. In 2005, mario came to the United States from his homeland of Trinidad & Tobago. He has since called wilkinsburg home and invested himself in the revitalization of the neighborhood. 
mario owns Good Green Fashion on Wood Street and is currently under construction to build an entertainment studio in the adjacent building. a musical artist himself, mario envisions a space for commercial and private users alike; after receiving a tour of the building I can’t help but be impressed and look forward to its completion.
