Established in 1816, The Arsenal served as a staple to the industry and economy not just of Philadelphia—but of the entire country. Once the center of U.S. military ammunition design and development, the space was a pivotal player in the Civil War, World War I and II, and the Vietnam War. The people who worked within these walls were artisans, engineers, physicists, inventors, and innovators. They did more than make ammunition, they made history.
Over 200 years later, and The Arsenal is still home to companies and people making history every single day. Keep reading to see how some of our awesome tenants and neighbors are stepping up during these trying times to support the community.
ENGINEERING FOR THE GREATER GOOD
“As engineers we don’t stop building, we simply pivot.” The team at Oat Foundry has made a shift to support healthcare professionals, both near and far, who are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 efforts. They’re currently engineering Reusable Face Shields and other products essential for their work. We’ve never been prouder to call them a tenant at The Arsenal!

SUPPORT FOR THE SOUL
More than ever, it’s important to support small businesses and our neighborhood’s food banks. Making an order from The Soulfull Project does both! All orders over $50 ship for free (use code SUPPORT), and as always, for every serving sold, The Soulfull Project donates a serving to a local food bank. Browse their selection of NON GMO, clean label cereal products to help now!
Our neighbors at the Bridesburg Commissary in Building 39 are taking initiative during these trying times and are providing 400 free packed lunches a day to children in the surrounding neighborhood. Check out their Instagram to see how you can help support this awesome cause!
