Esperanza Charter Middle School

Philadelphia, PA

Previous Project

Esperanza Charter Middle School 

PZS designed a 100,000 square foot middle school on the Esperanza campus, which included the development of a new 18,000 square foot building for performing arts and physical education, as well as additional parking facilities. The project also involved the modification of vehicular and pedestrian patterns to accommodate access to the new facilities and to increase parking on site.
This project was part of a larger overall master plan for Esperanza's campus located at Fifth Street and Bristol Streets. The 8-acre campus includes three former industrial buildings totaling 210,000 square feet, which also house their administrative offices, a technology-based high school, Esperanza College of Eastern University, and a career center.
