Wynnefield Overbrook Revitalization Corporation

The Collaborative provides design consultations to store owners who are applying for grants and loans to improve their storefront facades. Consultations are provided through community development corporations and other nonprofits, who recruit store owners on their corridors to participate. The consultations focused on seven owners eligible for City of Philadelphia Storefront Improvement Program grants and builds on recent renovations to the upper stories of storefronts on the 1800 block of North 54th Street.
