During the spring of 2021, our Design Pro Development staff and the local community came together on the 1700 block of N. 25th street for our very first (but not last!) community block cleanup. Thank you to block captain, Winfield, for keeping the community together and allowing us to make this happen. Stay tuned for future block cleanups and check out our instagram @designprodev for more community updates!
Community Unity Day
Robert Morris Elementary School is located in the heart of Brewerytown at 2600 W Thompson St. We’ve had the pleasure of partnering with the school on multiple events including two Holiday Toy Drives and Community Unity Day where we were able to donate over 70 book bags loaded with school supplies.
Robert Morris School
We find it so important to take part in these local events and contribute to the community in any way that we can, especially when it comes to the youth and education in the area. We’ve built a wonderful relationship with the Robert Morris School and hope to keep the tradition of working with them for years to come.
Easter Egg Hunt
Easter 2018, we were able to sponsor the Branch Family Inc. Easter Egg Hunt. The festivities took place at the Brewerytown Garden located at N 27th and Master Street. Interested in the Branch family’s initiatives in the community? Check them out on Instagram @branchfamilyinc. We hope to continue building our relationship with the Branch family in all of their future endeavors.
Meet & Greet
Real Estate Development in Philadelphia can seem combative but working together is so important to the big picture of residential and commercial improvement in local communities. In August 2017, we hosted our first Contractor Meet & Greet in collaboration with the Brewerytown/Sharswood NAC. Bringing together local electricians, plumbers and HVAC contractors increases not only communication and comradery in an often competitive industry, but opportunities for employment.
Kith + Kin Book Drive
Our office neighbor Kith + Kin is a space for young children and their parents to enjoy educational activities, support groups, classes and play for development and connection. With drop-in passes or monthly/annual memberships, it’s a wonderful space for local families to come together with their children. We were so excited to partner with them and sponsor their Holiday Party & Book Drive for the Community Partnership School. With cookie decorating and live music, it was a wonderful mix entertainment for kids and their parents – all for a great cause. We look forward to more events with Kith + Kin. Look for the big blue apple outside their location at 31st & Jefferson and pop in to say hello!
