The Cedar Works is a 15,000 sq. foot reclaimed warehouse, located in the Cedar Park neighborhood of West Philadelphia, that has been renovated into a community-oriented work and meeting space.
In 2011, Mill Creek Design partnered with Friday Architects/Planners, Inc to masterplan and re-purpose the building as a community work and meeting space. Major design objectives were to solve the complex code and egress issues of the land-locked mid-block site and to preserve and amplify original and character defining features of the building.
Friday worked with the Greater Easton Downtown Partnership to develop a masterplan for renovations to re-purpose a large building for a Public Market. The building is close to Centre Square in downtown Easton. The Market opened last fall and has been well supported by the community. Funding limitations meant that the complete renovation could not be realized, but Friday’s work set the framework for continued phased improvements.
