Beech Street Factory
- Pottstown, Pennsylvania
- Date Completed
The Beech Street Factory combines workforce apartments with a community arts center to rejuvenate a forgotten Pottstown landmark. The $14.09 million redevelopment of the vacant Fecera’s Furniture warehouse at 341 Beech Street will convert the empty 60,000-square-foot space into 43 apartments, ample resident amenity space, and the new ADA-compliant home of ArtFusion, Pottstown’s well-known community art school and gallery.
The resident amenities at the Beech Street Factory are numerous – a private landscaped courtyard, resident business center, community room and art gallery, on-site laundry, individual basement storage lockers, designated o -street parking, and high-quality nishes. Works of art by members of ArtFusion will be featured prominently throughout the residential space, from the community room/art gallery to the lobby and hallways.
Each year, Housing Visions will provide ArtFusion memberships for residents of the Beech Street Factory, as well as community scholarships for classes at ArtFusion. Our collective hope is that the Beech Street Factory will serve as a neighborhood anchor for the arts, catalyzing a Pottstown Arts District between Beech Street and High Street and increasing economic activity in the Borough.
