Beautification and Neighborhood Stories and Planning and Zoning22 May 2012 05:19 pm

We love it when other websites and blogs take notice of some of the great stuff happening in our neighborhood. The blog Naked Philly recently featured the renovation of 1131-1137 Wharton Street – the headquarters of the Passyunk Avenue Revitalization Corporation. PARC, who visited our civic association’s zoning committee last summer to get approval for this project, has moved their offices downstairs and activated the Titan Street side of the building, turning a gi-normous, blank, stucco wall into something kinda cool. On the second floor and in lofts above are now five luxury apartments.

Check out some other cool features mentioned in the Naked Philly post:

each of which will have an individual solar power array. On the first floor, each apartment will have its own parking space, as well as an electric car charging station, powered by each apartment’s solar unit.

Naked Philly includes some great before-and-after shots as well as the renderings for the eventual finished product. Give it a look.
