Westrum Development Company
Kramer Marks Architects
Dale Corp. performed General Construction services for Westrum Development on this 235-unit development in South Philadelphia offering suburban living in an urban setting. The homes, a combination of townhouses and condominiums were built on a triangular land area on what was formerly a United States naval housing site, built in 1962 and abandoned in 1995 after the Cold War. The colonial styled architecture incorporated the “green technology” of environmentally adaptive re-use of existing piles and foundations, infrastructure, and materials previously built by the Navy. The existing street layout preserved green areas augmented with large back yards, open area pocket parks and tot lots.
