A first step in the social, economic, and environmental revitalization of one of Philadelphia’s most blighted industrial areas, the $72 million, 130,000 SF Salvation Army facility features a conference and training center, aquatic center, and a variety of programming to serve both families and individuals. The site, a 12 acre brownfield tract, was the former home of Budd Co., the proposed site for a casino, and, most recently, a city auto impound lot. Amy Stein and Christopher Mendel will lead guided tours for all attendees of both the building and the site, addressing your specific questions and offering a behind-the-scenes look at this amazing new community center.
