Art Deco Auto Showroom Approved for Historic Designation

Late last week, the Philadelphia Historical Commission granted historical designation to the 1930's-era Art Deco auto showroom at 1501 Fairmount Avenue. "This building is a neighborhood landmark," said Ben Leech, advocacy director for the Preservation Alliance. "It is a timely nomination, as the surge of redevelopment continues down the commercial corridor moving east toward Broad Street." [Hidden City]
