Pryamid Lofts is located in the Brewerytown neighborhood of Philadelphia. Brewerytown is located one mile northwest of Center City Philadelphia, and its southern border is defined by Fairmount Park and the Art Museum area.
With a strong strategic location to major roads, trains and Center City, business such as Breweries and warehouses to serve Philadelphia were built.
The historical architecture was influenced by German architecture and specifically the vision of Otto Wolf.
Pryamid Lofts was no exception, built in 1922 by famed architect Leroy B. Rothschild, the building served as a warehouse for Harry C. Kahn & Sons, a furniture retailer.
Harry C. Kahn & Sons commercial storefront and warehouse closed in 1961. Pryamid Electric Supply Company would eventually vacate the building, and it would become derelict.
The warehouse, located at a fivepoint intersection, became a blank canvas for both local and national graffiti artists.
With the completion of AF Bornot Dye Works Lofts, a vacated textile factory, at 1642 Fairmount Avenue, MMPartners has previous experience with incorporating certain aspects of the historic buildings within the development space.
