What do these buildings and sites have in common? They’re all on the latest Endangered Properties List, compiled each year by the Preservation Alliance of Greater Philadelphia.

The list for 2013 reflects some of the challenges the Collaborative has been asked to address through design. How can Philadelphia make the most of the School District of Philadelphia’s inventory of school buildings, especially those now in search of new uses? How can businesses leverage the historic details on their storefronts to boost business and foot traffic on commercial corridors?

Get a fresh appreciation for the treasures and threats to the Philly landscape—and join us in finding smart solutions to save these structures. Check out the Endangered Properties List.
