SAAarchitects has begun field investigation and design for the conversion of two buildings, located at 259 – 261 East Philadelphia Street, York, PA, into four residential units for Bell Socialization Services, Inc. The project will involve adaptive reuse of the long vacant, historical residential and recent office structures back into residential housing. Located in York’s Historical Architectural Review Board (HARB) district, the exterior will comply with local historic district guidelines and the Secretary of the Interiors Standards. Funding will be provided through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The project will bring residential activity back to vacant structures on an important city corner.
