On April 26th, Rodriguez Consulting participated in National Rebuilding Day Block Build, an event organized by Rebuilding Together Philadelphia in partnership with the Arab-American Community Development Corporation, Conifer Realty, LLC, and South Kensington Community Partners. The purpose of the event was to rebuild 3 houses, mulch and trim trees, plant downspout and curbside planters as well as plant a community garden. In addition to support from Conifer Realty, this project also had support from the Philadelphia Water Department and the Philadelphia Housing Development Corporation.
After the event there was a separate groundbreaking ceremony for Tajdeed Residences, a housing development that Rodriguez is providing site design services. Tajdeed Residences, is an affordable housing development being developed by the Arab-American Community Development Corporation (AACDC) and Conifer Realty. In Arabic, “tajdeed” means renewal.
