Project Summary

The Philadelphia Housing Authority is consolidating their operations and administrative teams previously scattered throughout the city within their new 136,600-square-foot Ridge Avenue Headquarters. This 5-story building, which includes ground floor retail and a café, reflects a $45-million investment by the PHA into the Sharswood neighborhood. This building utilized terra-cotta in their design to provide texture and break up the large scale of the façade and is aiming for LEED Certification.
