Callowhill looks askance at Phila Historical Commission demo decision

September 16, 2010

More on Church of the Assumption, the 1849 church on Spring Garden Street.  Last week the Philadelphia Historical Commission voted to grant the financial hardship application of Siloam Ministries, which seeks to demolish the structure (protected by its listing on the local register of historic places).

Plan Philly reports that the Callowhill Neighborhood Association (CNA) disagrees with the decision, and may file an appeal by the September 25 deadline.

The full story is here.

CNA believes that Siloam has financial options, they could sell or repurpose the other real estate they own (parking lots or convent) to supplement their funding needs and resolve their financial hardship,” [CNA president Amy] Hooper said.
