Over a decade ago, The Goldenberg Group and West Philadelphia Financial Services Institution (WPFSI) partnered with the community to develop the ParkWest Town Center at 52nd and Jefferson Streets in Philadelphia. This 340,000 square-foot, $55 million retail center created more than 700 jobs and is anchored by ShopRite and West Philadelphia’s first Lowe's. The success of this project is a testament to the tenacity of the community, the development team and government officials. Over a decade after completion, this formerly blighted neighborhood continues to grow and thrive by leveraging ParkWest’s economic and community improvements which have stimulated additional growth including new residential and commercial developments.
Each year The Goldenberg Group and WPFSI host a festival the first Saturday in June at the ParkWest Town Center for the residents of Parkside to provide an opportunity for residents to come together and establish positive relationships with neighbors, local businesses and local officials. The festival also serves as a celebration and reminder of what can be achieved through community initiatives, public-private partnerships and the power of determination.
