Park Towne Place: Art Acquisition Program

Park Towne Place

Entry Deadline: Jan. 26

2200 Benjamin Franklin Parkway
Philadelphia, PA 19130

Park Towne Place is currently undergoing a full redevelopment program to create a revitalized property and once again be among the premier rental communities in Center City Philadelphia. Park Towne Place is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the first mid-century modern multi-family residential complex in the Commonwealth to achieve this designation. The focus of the redevelopment effort is not only on improving the physical aspects of the property, but also to have Park Towne be fully integrated with the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and its thriving cultural institutions. A goal of the property is to have a ongoing art program, including both rotational and purchased pieces for the permanent collection. The owner, Aimco, will be purchasing a collection of original artwork to be publicly displayed on site and within the buildings’ common areas.
