HOW Expands to Restoration

HOW-Construction
The HOW family is expanding, and we are excited to announce our newest addition, HOW Restoration Construction. This company may be new, but our team members are anything but inexperienced. Led by Jason Hartley, the team has a combined 55 years of experience working on several high-profile projects. After Hurricane Sandy, Jason completed water damage restoration tasks for the United Nations headquarters and several buildings on Wall Street, not to mention the various schools and hospitals who needed assistance. During the year 2016, the HOW Restoration team worked on more than 50 reconstruction jobs.

In the wake of a disaster, working with HOW Restoration gives you access to a single skilled team which meets all your restoration needs. No matter if your residential or commercial property has been damaged by water, fire, smoke, mold, or a combination, they have the skills and experience needed to repair the damage. The team also offers temporary power and HVAC services. Additionally, HOW Restoration has plenty of experience working alongside insurance companies, so you can rest assured that all work will be performed according to the specifics of your policy.

What Sets HOW Restoration Apart
HOW-Restoration
HOW Restoration and Construction offers both restoration and construction services from one source. After your property is damaged, you can work with one team to repair and rebuild your home or business from start to finish. There is no need to organize different projects with several contractors. HOW Restoration clients also reap the benefits of working with a locally-owned and operated business, rather than a large corporation.

In addition to being a company that provides high quality service, HOW places strong value in the people who work for us. As you may already be aware, Philly.com named the HOW family of companies one of the Top Work Places of 2016.

Welcome to Green Street Estates – 10 Luxury Homes in Philadelphia

Green Street Estates

On the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, one can view exclusive, luxurious, and sophisticated pieces of art — every aspect of the project from the sculptures, to the paintings, to the furniture defines elegance. The location displays creativity, technique, beauty and imagination. It is truly something most audiences have never experienced before.

One will assume I am talking about the traditionally touted Philadelphia Art Museum, but unlike any usual night, the lights are dim on one side of the parkway and shining bright on another. Behold and take in the visual of the newly established, Green Street Estates.

On December 14, 2016 Green Street Estates opened its doors for the first time as it showcased one of their 10 elaborate 5,285 square foot masterpieces. The five floor residences include: four bedrooms with a den and library, three full baths, two half baths, an elevator, two car garage and a roof top terrace with a powder room and built-in wet bar.

Its meticulous and thoughtful infrastructure was designed with tremendous precision.

When first walking into a Green Street Estates, you are immediately taken aback by the interior landscape capped off by its intimate fireplace setting, high ceiling recessed lighting, cleverly crafted kitchen-wall panel and stainless steel hardware. Immediately one must think, “I’ve seen this in a film”.

Its contemporary staircase with side glass panel can be confused with the depiction of heaven’s gates itself. Every bedroom resembles a master suite. Every bathroom you envision yourself bathing in. Every walk-in closet exudes a feeling of comfort and familiarity homey enough to want to place your clothes on its racks. The 100 guest-attendees at the showcase left with envy towards the buyers who purchased these 10 homes that ranged from $1.7 to $2 million dollars.

Green Street Estates is in a primetime location placed in the thick of the Art Museum locale. It sits minutes from the heart of Philadelphia, but placed conveniently enough to avoid the downtown chaos while being able to enjoy the decadent scenery.

Needless to say, everything you need is walking distance. Not convinced by this review? Step out onto the rooftop terrace and explore the amazing imagery for yourself.
