Law Enforcement Health Benefits (LEHB) is a non-profit organization managing the health insurance program for the Philadelphia Police Department and most specifically the Police union. Its clientele includes active duty and retired police officers, and immediate family members. The proposed Health & Wellness Center is envisioned as a core benefit promoting mental and physical well-being across the membership. Considering the preponderance of membership residing in the north and northeast portion of the City, the chosen site is ideally positioned for convenience of use.
This project features the construction of a new Health & Wellness Center at a site at the northwest corner of Roosevelt Blvd. and Grant Avenue for purposes of providing fitness training, behavioral, and dietary counseling to its membership. The site is an elongated rectangular configuration with approximately 475 ft of frontage on Roosevelt Blvd. and a depth of 102 FT. The project consisted of the demolition of the existing building, and design developed around a new 22,000 SF two-story building addressing LEHB’s needs.
