Upper Darby Community Center

Mayor Barbarann Keffer of Upper Darby, Pa., announced a $1 million grant from the Pennsylvania Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program to build a new community center. The project demonstrates the borough administration’s foresight toward sustainable architecture and community engagement. BKP designed an initial concept for the 15,000-square-foot facility to include meeting rooms, a multi-purpose gymnasium, and green infrastructure. The rooftop includes two dramatic elements – a public gathering space with views to the City of Philadelphia and a working/teaching garden to help educate community members, especially children, about how food grows.
