While designing the new senior residence, PHA sought to incorporate features found in the surrounding neighborhood. One major change is the location of the entrance which is now near the middle of the building on 22nd Street, versus the old entrance on Venango Street.

 

The new Plymouth Hall has outdoor green space and a gazebo in the rear of the building, as well as a green roof that can also be used by residents for fresh air and socialization.
