Single and Multi-Family Residential

New Construction & Retrofit
37,000 SF (Scattered Site)
Philadelphia, PA: Mantua

Scattered across twenty sites, this Pennsylvania Housing Financing Agency (PHFA)-funded project retrofits existing rowhomes and infills vacant lots with energy-efficient affordable housing. The project aims to increase cohesion of an already vibrant neighborhood by adding a housing bracket needed throughout the city. Existing, abandoned rowhomes will achieve ‘Zero Energy Ready Home’ certification through deep-energy retrofit techniques, while new construction projects will meet LEED Platinum Certification. An example of how to transition Philadelphia’s existing rowhomes into healthy housing models, WPRE VI will reinvigorate the neighborhood with equitable, all-electric, climate-conscious living.
