A Long Battle Finally Won for the PECO Delaware Station

Author: Andrea Smith

In the Fall of 2014, potential owners bid on the PECO Delaware Station with many visions for the site. Whether or not these projects included keeping the 223,000 sq ft building, changes would still be made that would not only affect the site, but the surrounding area of Fishtown. Designed in 1917 by John T. Windram and William Eglin along the Delaware River, the original PECO building served as a culturally and historically important structure for the changing Philadelphia area. Stephanie Haller, BS Arch and Arch Pres. ’15, decided to nominate the exterior of the building to be added to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places as her Architectural Preservation Capstone Project. She came in contact with Fishtown Neighbors Association member Jill Betters, who assisted Stephanie in the advocacy to save the building. Another close contact was Kim Broadbent of the Historical Commission, who assisted in editing the nomination of the building. Read More
