Join Nando Micale, Principal at Wallace Roberts + Todd, for a special walking tour of the historic Society Hill neighborhood. One of the nationâ€™s first urban renewal projects to embrace historic preservation, Society Hill is an important case study of adaptive reuse, public-private partnerships, and urban revitalization.
The neighborhood includes numerous 18th century houses, modern infill development, and the I.M. Pei-designed Society Hill Towers, interwoven with a system of pedestrian greenways installed in the 1960s as part of the urban renewal program. Today Society Hill is one of Philadelphiaâ€™s most affluent neighborhoods.
The tour leaves from the lobby of the Sheraton Society Hill Hotel.
