Community Ventures has been selected as the neighborhood development partner for the Stanton School site by the Community Design Collaborative to work with neighborhood stakeholders and the architecture/design community for a design charrette to imagine a reuse for the closed M. Hall Stanton School at 1523 W. Cumberland Street in Lower North Philadelphia.
In this full-day design charrette, designers, community leaders, public agencies, and other stakeholders will consider a continuum of reuse options: activating schools for temporary uses and adapting schools for entirely new uses. Charrette design concepts will be presented to a panel of experts in economic and community development, urban design, placemaking and real estate development.
