Square 75/2112 Penn Historic Preservation

The university worked closely with the Office of Planning historic preservation staff to develop a comprehensive Historic Preservation Plan for the Foggy Bottom Campus during the drafting of the 2007 Foggy Bottom Campus Plan. The historic plan ensures that appropriate campus resources are identified, preserved and maintained while accommodating the university’s forecasted space needs. The plan proposed a historic district on the campus, as well as the naming of additional landmark campus buildings to those already identified. The University is committed to maintaining the diversity of its building fabric on campus through the identification, maintenance, preservation and adaptive reuse of architectural and historic resources, including the resources in the pending historic district.

The row houses on Square 75 were not identified as historically significant during that process and were subsequently approved for redevelopment in the Campus Plan.
