Work in West Oak Lane - Northwest Philadelphia


West Oak Lane in Northwest Philadelphia is a great place to start or relocate a business, particularly a service or retail business, because so many people live within easy walking distance of our major retail districts.

There's a reason the Philadelphia City Paper described the Ogontz Avenue business district as "a relaxed, funky, sociable, eclectic, artsy…
shopping strip." Dozens of new merchants and businesses have set up shop and, with two large malls nearby, there is a lively rhythm to the neighborhood.

An ideal community is one where jobs and opportunities to learn and develop skills and trades are prevalent. Job development is a number-one priority for us. Before taking on any new project or revitalizing an existing project, jobs is of the upmost concern. OARC’s development projects offer full and part time, and short-term and permanent jobs.
