Tacony Academy Charter High School

City of Philadelphia, PA

Looking for a permanent home in a safe location that fit their budget, Tacony Academy selected a former commercial site on Rhawn Street in Northeast Philadelphia. Nave Newell worked with the architect to design the site for the 84,000 sf facility for 400 students. The new facility is three stories high with 70-75 parking spaces, 25 drop-off areas, and green space including a rain garden to manage stormwater. Nave Newell developed a site plan, designed stormwater management, and made submissions to the Philadelphia Water Department, Philadelphia Planning Commission, Streets Department and L&I to secure the necessary approvals for construction.
