Reminder: PHA to Demolish Germantown High-Rise on Saturday
The Philadelphia Housing Authority is scheduled to implode a 16-story high-rise in Germantown on Saturday morning.
NBC 10 reports: “Police will also be shutting down streets around the high-rise while the implosion is taking place. The demolition is scheduled to take place at 7:15 a.m. rain or shine.”
The high-rise will be replaced with a new public housing project — a “a 55-unit development that will include a mix of low-rise flats, walkups and townhouses.” All the units will be rentals.
