Tacony Community Development Corporation

As part of its storefront initiative program, the Tacony CDC requested the Collaborative’s design assistance to improve façade lighting for eight businesses along the Torresdale and Longshore Avenues. The designs show effective lighting concepts that highlight business identities, accentuate storefront architecture, and create a safer and more attractive commercial corridor. These concepts can be used as a model citywide.
