810 Arch Street

 

Editorial from Al Dia News

This Monday — amid street merchants hawking pope t-shirts, storefronts replete with bobblehead versions of the same, and a city girding itself with hundreds of porta-potties and worries, Project HOME and the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation quietly renamed a new affordable housing development in Chinatown in honor of Pope Francis.

Francis House of Peace

Project HOME announced final plans for its newest affordable housing development in Philadelphia, located in Chinatown at 810 Arch Street when it officially unveiled the name of the site – “Francis House of Peace.”  The name honors Pope Francis and his commitment to improve conditions for those who live in poverty.

The dedication ceremony with the partners, lead donors and residents took place on Monday, September 21, 2015. Project HOME also announced plans for its completion in early November 2015.
