The Daral Building

Reimagining Margaret-Orthodox
About This Project


4667-69 Paul Street


In 2016, Frankford CDC began the full renovation of the Daral Building at 4667 Paul Street, in the heart of Frankford. Once a local dress shop and offices, the building had long been vacant. Completed in 2017, the Daral Building now houses the Frankford CDC offices, community space, and the offices of State Representative Jason Dawkins. This space has allowed the Frankford CDC to expand its services, deliver services more effectively by being centrally located, and to streamline the provision of services by being co-located with the State Representative’s constituent services office. The renovation included a full interior renovation, facade repairs, and stained glass restoration. This project was made possible with funding and support from the Philadelphia Department of Commerce, PIDC, the Community Design Collaborative, and the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. Designed by: Richard Stange
