The School District of Philadelphia is seeking to sell this property to a responsible, experienced developer to remove the blight and raise badly needed funds for our public education system. Philly Office Retail proposes to demolish the dilapidated building and construct 76 new single family homes each with a dedicated driveway accommodating two cars. There will be 52 additional open parking spaces available for residents and their guests.

We ask that you sign our Petition of Support, which will help us redevelop this key site in the community.
