MARKET FLATS

Location: Old City, Philadelphia, PA

Client: Onion Flats

Completion Date: 1999


Market Flats is in the heart of the oldest and most historic district of Philadelphia, commonly referred to as Old City. It is five-story, historically certified, red brick building, facing north and was constructed in ca. 1880.  Our interventions in the building were minimal and inexpensive.  The ground floor maintains a commercial space indicative of Market Street and each of the four floors above was renovated into a 1400 SF loft.  A large open grate steel deck was constructed on the rear of the building in order to provide a second means of egress and exterior open space for each unit.
