Stephen Goldner graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Architecture 1955 and became licensed in 1959. In 1965 he started (after working for various firms) his own private Architectural Design Firm. For the next 40 years, as the principal of his own practice, he was responsible for the design of a multitude of commercial developments with the majority being for the public and private housing industries.
Starting during the 1980’s he began designing and developing smaller ” infill ” housing projects for himself in neighborhoods like Queen Village, University of Pennsylvania campus area, Society Hill, etc. These smaller inner city developments were not in competition with his numerous housing clients, for whom for the most part, he was planning and designing numerous major housing subdivisions in the Tri-State area. His client’s projects included Sales, Rental and Condominium housing of all sizes and shapes.
During 2005 he retired from his Architectural practice. However, he continued in his efforts to develop small residential Developments. The latest being “Kingsley Court”, a 32 twin home subdivision in Roxborough. Not being a big developer, he maintains very little overhead, and being over 80 years of age, he is not ‘in it for the money’. Rather, he cooses to design and sell a good product at an affordable price.
Hope Matters Radio’s Staff is excited to have Stephen come on the show and share his lengthy housing design and sales experience with our listeners.Contact Stephen Goldner: Stephen Goldner
