WE ARE MOVING!!!
February 01, 2017

Happy New Year, Frankford CDC friends, supporters, and community! We want to thank you for the success of our 2016 Capital Campaign, in which  See more

THE STORY:

This year the Frankford CDC is kicking off our first annual Capital Campaign to renovate our new office building located at 4667-69 Paul Street in the Frankford section of Philadelphia. In May of 2016, the Frankford CDC acquired a vacant, 4,100 square foot, 2-story commercial building to house our new offices on the second floor and additional leased office space and a business incubator space for an internet café on the first floor.

The Doral building sits as a landmark on the northeast corner of Frankford Avenue and Paul Street, caddy corner to SEPTA’s newly renovated Arrott Transportation Center  for the Market/Frankford Elevated line. The renovation project will provide the building with 21 st century technology but will also preserve a lot of the historical architectural features.

The building will retain the old block façade with tempered glass in a recessed entrance. The old terrazzo tiled entrance will be repaired as well as the stained glass above the entrance door transoms. The showcase windows will be preserved and used as a display for community and café programing. This high tech building will give FCDC a presence on Frankford Avenue, and will serve as a catalyst for revitalization of a major intersection, while allowing the CDC to grow and build it’s capacity for the future.

This project is vital, as it is the first of several projects planned towards our goal of revitalizing the Frankford Avenue business district.  The Frankford CDC is also working with the Philadelphia City Planning Commission to build an interactive park next door to the building. Just recently we completed a streetscaping plan with the Community design collaborative in efforts to make the Avenue more welcoming to visitors.

We cannot sustain our mission to improve the lives for the residents of Frankford without the continued generosity of private donors.  We have received a tremendous amount of support through local government and foundation funding. However, those funds almost always require that we raise additional funds to complete the project. To date, the Frankford CDC has raised well over $500,000 from public and private sources for this project.

We need your support to help us raise another $45,000 towards our goal to complete the first phase of the project by December 31, 2016.  Come winter of 2017, Donors will begin to see first hand the significant impact their contribution has made towards improving this area, around the Arrott Transporation Center and the positive affect it will have on local businesses. Additionally, you'll be recognized for your generosity as a capital campaign supporter on the Frankford CDC website and in our Winter newsletter.

Please be assured that your contribution will be put to good use to provide help to individuals in need of assistance right here in our community.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and continued support.
