As we previously reported, PA House bill 2291 included much needs funds for the proposed addition to Frankford Friends. The addition requires a zoning variance which is being supported by the Frankford Civic Association. Read the full report of their last meeting here on NEastPhilly.com. It is gratifying that a prestigious institution like Friends is making this significant investment in Frankford.
The DIGSAU architecture firm has some visuals on their web site of the plans. Have a look. It will really transform that intersection. To see the plans, click on Work and then Frankford Friends. If all goes well, the addition will be open in Fall 2011.
