It is fitting that Oxford Mills—one of the great textile manufacturing complexes in Philadelphia —be reborn into a center that attracts individuals and organizations that work to strengthen Philadelphia’s communities today.
Preserving history. And making our own.
Erected in seven stages (between 1873 and 1913), Oxford Mills was once the largest dye works factory in the South Kensington neighborhood, and the largest recycler of surplus cotton (modern day cotton “recycling”) in Philadelphia. The complex, totaling 170,000 square feet, represents a significant era in Philadelphia’s textile history. After decades of industrial productivity comprising a wide variety of uses, the buildings will undergo a historically-certified restoration using sustainable design and building methods. Transformed into elegant, affordable living and commercial space, this innovative project provides a vibrant, supportive environment where our educators and nonprofits can collaborate and thrive.
