Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) has officially opened their new headquarters at 2013 Ridge Avenue. Previously located in Center City, this new 5-story building consolidates numerous PHA offices and functions in this 136,000 SF headquarter space.
Metropolitan Acoustics, as part of the design team, provided recommendations for the interior room acoustics for the lobby and enclosed rooms, speech privacy in open office areas, acoustical isolation between enclosed rooms and between floors, and mechanical system noise/vibration control throughout the building.
The $45 Million building marks the first step in a Sharswood/Blumberg Transformation Plan for the revitalization of the Ridge Avenue commercial corridor. The proposed transformation plan involves a multi-phase, mixed-use development that includes both a rental and market-rate residential development.
