Harrison Tower, a prominent building in the Yorktown section of Philadelphia, benefited from renovations and repositioning of the 15-story building into new affordable senior-oriented housing with 116 units, amenities, and common spaces for residents to age in place.

The main arrival is adorned with two new entry canopies, a formal entrance from N. 9th Street, and an entrance to parking and accessible vehicle drop-off on the opposite end. The masonry was cleaned, repaired, and refreshed with new mortar. From afar, the building gained new  vibrancy with the addition of a variegated color aluminum panel system at the midsection of all four facades. The new panels reinforce the verticality of the building while complementing the sharp corners and improving the building’s climate performance. The addition of new thermal insulation, high-performance windows, LED lights, and water-saving plumbing fixtures enhance the eco-friendly design. The new Harrison Tower was designed for Enterprise Green Communities certification.
