Project H.O.M.E. and Bethesda Project

Project H.O.M.E. in coordination with the Bethesda Project have broken ground on an LEED-Certified, housing project in Center City, just a block from City Hall. That's prime real estate, just behind the SEPTA building and St. John the Evangelist Church on 13th Street.

Designed to house 79 residents, the building occasionally conjures up images of mid-century public housing or a school, but it does so in kind of a cool way. With it's narrow windows and discrete entrance, at first glance I thought it was a really hip rehab of an outdated building that currently occupied the lot. But the more I look at it, the more I like it. And it's green!

Good job guys!
