Located in Fitler Square, the Goddard School of Philadelphia is an Early Childhood Education Center that addressed the need for child care and pre-school services in one of the most family-oriented neighborhoods in Center City Philadelphia. The building is a former parking garage that PZS re-purposed into classrooms, offices, and a large multi-purpose space on the first floor. This project included an update to the building’s facade, new windows, and large “garage” doors at street level that allow for safe access to the outside for play and recreation when the weather is nice. The building is two levels and approximately 11,000 square feet.
This project is a 2021 Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia Grand Jury Award Winner.
