“In West Philadelphia, built and raised.” – U City Flats
HOUSING FIT FOR A (FRESH) PRINCE
Set between Walnut Hill & West Powelton, U City Flats has added new housing to the community in an up-and-coming neighborhood of Philadelphia. It has become a haven for innovative institutions, new small businesses, and residents, creating exciting opportunities for increasing economic prosperity. For us, this project was another chance to provide lasting value to the great city of Philadelphia.
ADDING VALUE TO THE COMMUNITY
While working on this project, we have been inspired by the neighborhood and the people within it. One organization that is creating a positive team atmosphere is Green City Works, a social venture landscaping project. Xia Frazier, a resident and member of the organization says,
“When you take talented people and provide them with good quality jobs, support, and training and advancement opportunities, they are amazing…That has been our philosophy and it has fueled the growth of this company.”
PARTNERSHIP IS WHERE IT'S AT
At VBC, our staff and partners mean everything to us. We endeavor to provide job opportunities for people that want to be a part of something that will make a lasting difference in their lives and the environment we live in. We support local corners of the market by producing new buildings where people can live, work, and explore, and there’s nothing better than that!
