University Square Apartments, located at 3901 Market Street in Philadelphia, was constructed in 1977. The building is comprised of a 19-story 442-unit, affordable senior residential tower with an adjacent two-story commercial structure.
K&A’s Asset Preservation studio designed improvements to the residential tower’s exterior, interior units/common spaces, handicap accessible features, and building systems. A patterned multi-color exterior insulation finish system was installed on the building’s facade to provide an updated and attractive energy-efficient skin. The building’s exterior was highlighted with a 19-story mural on the east end wall by the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program / Faith XLVII titled “The Silent Watcher.”
K&A is honored to be a part of this successful project which preserves the past and offers seniors a safe and affordable place to live in the future.
