This project involved the complete redevelopment of two city square blocks in Philadelphia’s Queen Village, resulting in a total of 552,000 square feet of new subsidized townhouses and apartments. Previously existing low-rise housing units were demolished and replaced with 305 two-story, colonial-style townhouses. The two, three, or four bedroom units are constructed of wood frame with brick and vinyl siding. Interior finishes include carpeting, painting, kitchen cabinets, appliances, and window treatments.
Two existing apartment towers were imploded and a third, 218,000 square-foot, 26-story apartment building was completely renovated. The building provides 118 one-bedroom and 47 two-bedroom elderly apartment units as well as community rooms and support services on the lower levels. The high-rise has all new plumbing, HVAC, electrical, and fire protection systems as well as upgraded elevators and life safety features. Exterior restoration involved replacing all windows and enclosing existing balconies with EIFS to expand interior living space. The entire brick façade was cleaned, repointed, repaired, and sealed with MODAC masonry coating.
