Jackhammer in Philadelphia by Plumbob

 
April 19th, 2011 by Sanjay Gangal

First LEED-H Gold Residential/Commercial live/work space in the City of Philadelphia

Formerly a convenience store and significant loitering/drug dealing corner property, neighbors seemed pleased when it caught on fire and was demolished in 2005. The architects felt it was important to restore the life and sense of community to this small but unique corner of Fishtown. While only 14’-0” wide and barely a 700 sf site footprint, they managed to create a vibrant, light-filled commercial space on the ground floor and basement as well as one residential dwelling on the 2nd and 3rd floors with a large green roof.
