Saved! Furness Church Escapes Demolition

New, 1 comment

The 1900 Church of the Atonement at 47th and Kingsessing, designed by Frank Furness, has been spared from demolition with the aid of UPenn's Aaron Wunsch. Via Hidden City: "Wunsch courted former mayor–and current chair of Partners for Sacred Spaces–W. Wilson Goode, "who helped usher the purchase through the Department of Licenses and Inspections." Two schools are in talks to eventually lease the space."[Hidden City]
