As the OIC grew into a national operation, the Philadelphia center outgrew the space. The organization eventually moved to Broad and Thompson, where Sullivan had constructed a suburban-style modernist office building.

    One building's journey from a place of incarceration, to a venue of liberation - Philly
    There is a certain poetic justice when a building designed to incarcerate people is turned into venue for liberation. The handsome Colonial Revival structure at 19th and Oxford in North Philadelphia has undergone that transformation twice in its existence. The brick-and-stone building started life around 1910 as a police station and jail.

    L&I commissioner: Boarding houses aren't going away. Philly neighborhoods need to make room for them : Urban Planning : WHYY
    Philadelphia's Licenses & Inspections Commissioner David Perri thinks that the city's zoning code is "inadvertently" encouraging property owners to illegally carve dwellings into multi-unit boarding houses. The regulations skirted by such scofflaw rooming houses are designed to prevent tragedies like the fire that killed four residents of one such makeshift apartment complex in North Philadelphia last month.

    Renter beware: Philly's deadly housing problem
    The 1800 block of North 21 Street looks a lot like many stretches of North Philadelphia, with three-story red-brick rowhomes standing over vacant lots and cracked sidewalks. But the neighborhood is more complicated than it looks. Some of these handsome, weathered buildings house one family, while others quietly, and often, illegally, shelter multiple families in small, subdivided units invisible to the outside.
