"Soon to be energy efficient"

Paschall is a neighborhood located in Southwest Philadelphia. It is an area known for its drug related activity more than anything else. But in the last year the neighborhood was marked as a place for renovation and was set to be known for a different kind of green, one that is better for the environment.

In 2010 the Philadelphia Housing Authority broke ground for the development and/or renovation of 1,200 houses in an attempt to improve the condition of the neighborhood. The public housing will be made of green technologies, meaning they’re safer for the earth. They will contain solar panels that will cut electricity bills in half.

Paschall is a lower income neighborhood with many residents on public assistance. As a result the living costs are cheap and property value is low. Of course the crime is still a large concern but the new construction of the housing community on Paschall Ave and the development of more open streets the city hopes to turn the once dangerous neighborhood into a thriving, safe area.
It is a course a work in progress, change doesn’t happen overnight. The neighborhood is still not the safest place in the city but it’s also not the worst.
