Design Pro Development Proudly Presents: The Haven Lofts
We have taken our best efforts in preserving the historical elements of this building. As the public use and popularity of this building as a church had dwindled over the past few decades, we saw an opportunity to give this building a new life while celebrating moments of the past. We hope this building is an inspiration to others to explore adaptive reuses of Philadelphia’s rich historic building and architecture.
