On a picture-perfect Wednesday morning, Metropolitan Acoustics’ Felicia and Xian attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the Philadelphia Housing Authority’s new headquarters. A large crowd gathered on site in the Sharswood neighborhood in Philadelphia to celebrate this milestone in the development and ongoing transformation of this part of the city. Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney was there and gave a great speech, full of positivity and optimism. The development of this site is ambitious and has been in the works for quite some time, but this ground breaking represents the important beginning of a multi-phase plan to bring new housing and revitalized commercial development to this area. Metropolitan Acoustics is proud to be on the design team for this project, providing acoustical consultation services during the design phase and construction administration throughout the project.
