Dale Corp. was contracted by The Philadelphia Housing Authority to design and construct the Gordon Street affordable housing development which sprawls across Berks, Monument, and Arlington Streets between 32nd and 33rd Streets. The scope comprised of 36 units which included two or three story single-family townhomes and duplexes. In addition to a community building with a management office and community room, there are seven wheelchair accessible units and one hearing and visually impaired accessible unit. The design of the buildings reflects the existing context of the area while drawing inspiration from the surrounding architecture. The homes are the first of its type for subsidized housing in the city, boasting an open floor plan with high end, energy efficient features. The new floor plan also reversed the position of a typical city home allowing for more interior square footage per unit.
