September 19, 2017

Philadelphia Mayor James Kenney will be among those on hand Wednesday to help Presby break ground on its newest Affordable Housing community, Cantrell Place in South Philadelphia.

Presby’s Inspired Life on Wednesday will break ground on Cantrell Place, a new Affordable Housing community in South Philadelphia at 5th and Cantrell Streets that will offer 61 units of Affordable Housing to seniors 62 and better.

Local officials, including Philadelphia Mayor James Kenney, Philadelphia City Councilman Mark Squilla, Pennsylvania State Representative William Keller, Pennsylvania Housing and Finance Agency Executive Director Brian Hudson and representatives from the Philadelphia Housing Authority and the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority will speak at the ceremony, which is slated to begin at 2:30 p.m.

Mayor Kenney is scheduled to speak at approximately 2:45 p.m. The ceremonial dig will follow at approximately 3:30 p.m.

Cantrell Place, sponsored by Presby’s Inspired Life, will offer adults 62 and better a new Affordable Housing option within Philadelphia, a city that is working to ensure that all of its residents, not just seniors, have access to safe and Affordable Housing. This development will transform 33 blighted vacant lots into the 61 new Affordable Housing units. The project has been in development since 2011.

It should be noted that Mayor Kenney grew up on Cantrell Street, so local residents are excited to welcome him for this event.
