Franklin Towne Charter High School (FTCHS), classified as a high-performing school by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and School District of Philadelphia, required additional space. A historic site was identified for redevelopment. The site, Building 215 of the Arsenal Business Center, was considered ideal for supplementing the existing high school programs, including its career-oriented curriculum and rigorous sports programs. It gave the site and building new purpose as an adaptive reuse project.
