The buildings are located at 204-206 East Girard Avenue on a main commercial corridor in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia. They are two three-story, mixed-use buildings with storefront units on the first floor and apartments above.
For over 5 years the blighted buildings have stood vacant and deteriorating. The planned green renovation will bring the buildings to LEED Platinum status, the highest level of certification of this green building certification system. The completed project will have two storefronts, one two-bedroom apartment and three one-bedroom apartments.
YIKES is excited to be a part of the revitalization of the Girard Avenue commercial corridor in Fishtown. Since its inception in 1996, YIKES has been dedicated to sustainable and green business practices. The opportunity to build and occupy a LEED Platinum office is a dream come true for us.
