Project Details

Philadelphia’s Witherspoon Building, which was built for the Presbyterian Board of Publications, is a visual landmark in Center City Philadelphia with its terra cotta-clad exterior and richly integrated sculptural elements. The building was rehabilitated for short term stay apartments with a commercial ground floor. As part of the project, historic entrances and storefronts were reestablished, and new windows were installed to meet the local historic commission requirements and the requirements of the National Park Service. The interior was fully rehabilitated with updated floor plans, features, and finishes.

Heritage secured state and federal historic tax credit approvals.
