Wynne Senior Residences is a 51 unit affordable apartment building for seniors 62+. With tremendous support from neighborhood groups and the City of Philadelphia, Pennrose and its joint venture partner Wynnefield Overbrook Revitalization Corporation (WORC) are redeveloping the once popular Wynne Theater site into a brand new senior community that provides much needed affordable housing for the local senior population and a variety of amenities for the neighborhood as a whole.
The newly constructed building was designed to replicate much of the architectural heritage of the previously iconic Wynne Theater. The building was historically used as a ballroom, cinema, and later a catering facility.
The 51 unit senior residences are available in 46 one bedroom units and five (5) two bedroom floor plans. Wynne Senior Residences feature a large community room with a kitchenette, lounge, laundry facilities, wellness center, computer lounge, and retail space.
