Wynnefield Overbrook Revitalization Corporation

In 2010, designers completed conceptual site plans, cost estimates, and renderings for reuse options that would preserve the theater’s headhouse and redevelop the footprint of the deteriorated theater space as a park, off-street parking, a community center, and apartments.
