Beech Communities Services acquired 2340 Cecil B.Moore Avenue(Dox Thrash House) in October 2020. Dox Thrash was a distinguished African American artist, and an important figure in the history of printmaking.

Beech Community Services development forecast includes a commercial space on the first floor; 2nd & 3rd floors will be residential lofts studios / living space. The goal is to redevelop the structure because of its historical value to the community: both residential and artist.

Key factors include:

  • the building was the home of Dox Thrash, a black Philadelphia artist and businessman.
  • the architecture represents a unique style.
  • the role the building can have in the revitalization of the Cecil B Moore Avenue Commercial Corridor.

Pending funding, in the summer of 2021 Beech Community Services will release application details to lease both the retail space and lofts studios / living space.
