ADVOCACY UPDATE: North City Trust added to Philadelphia Register

We are happy to announce our most recent successful nomination, the former North City Trust Company, 5700 N. Broad St. Completed in 1931 with a design by local practitioners Clarence Thalheimer and David Weitz, the building additionally served as the home of the Seaboard Mutual Casualty Company and the Beneficial Saving Fund. It is a remarkably intact example of Art Deco design and early 20th century banking institutions. Thanks to Adrian Trevisan, who prepared the nomination on our behalf.

A reminder that PHC meetings are currently being hosted remotely and are open to the public. Recordings of remote meetings and past meeting minutes are available on the Philadelphia Historical Commission’s website.
