Economic Development

FINANTA

FINANTA is planning a mixed-use development for the North Front Street Commercial Corridor. The Collaborative’s conceptual design offers strategies for designing in the shadow of the Market-Frankford elevated tracks and creating a clean, modern, light-filled building. The goal is to bring activity to the block beyond the workday with a credit union, start-up space for new small businesses, and a café or coffee house—with light-filled, airy apartments above.
