Wissahickon Charter School (WCS) is a K-8 school in Philadelphia with the mission of providing a community of learning with an environmental focus. Because of a renewed charter and increased enrollment, WCS decided to open a second location in Northwest Philadelphia. The project received multiple grants and New Market Tax Credits totaling $19.6 million in funding.

Remington Group, now Avison Young, was brought on board as WCS’s Owner’s Representative.
