Housing/Community Development

North Philadelphia Community Help, Inc.

Collaborative volunteers worked with North Philadelphia Community Help (NPCH) and AMT Industry on a programming and feasibility study for a narrow site on West Lehigh Avenue in North Philadelphia. The mixed-use site would serve multiple needs in the neighborhood by including affordable housing units as well as flexible community space to host a workforce development program for sterilization technicians.

"Design that is driven by community engagement helps to lead to places that are not only more inclusive and accessible to existing residents, but is also a way to promote greater civic engagement by giving people an active voice in the way their communities are shaped."
