Philadelphia, PA – Spring Garden, Philadelphia is the new home of the Department of Records space known as the City Archives’ Record Storage Center. The old University City location was shut down last December and relocated to 456 N. 5th Street in Philadelphia, PA.
The approximately 68,000 SF space was established to preserve all Philadelphia city records not in current use, possessing historical, research, legal, cultural and other important value. An integral part of the Records Management Division of the Philadelphia Department of Records, the facility houses more than 300 years of city records. The new location will also feature an interactive mural to be completed by Philadelphia-based artist Talia Green.
The Rock Brook Consulting Group, PA provided professional Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Protection engineering and IT, Audio/Visual and Security services of design and construction administration to support the relocation.
