Preservation Alliance Advocacy Alert: Family Court Building

The City of Philadelphia is reportedly preparing a request for proposals seeking private redevelopment of the Family Court Building, John T. Windrim's grand neoclassical landmark on Logan Circle.  We believe that a task force should be established to study the feasibility of keeping the building intact and in public use before any private redevelopment options are pursued. We are asking Mayor Nutter and City Council to support a public, transparent planning process for the building. Please consider adding your name to our petition by clicking here. Thank you!
