Our office is located in a storefront belonging to a pair of buildings with a unique history. The buildings are located at 204-206 East Girard Avenue on a main commercial corridor in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia.
Several years prior to YIKES moving in on August 1, 2011, the buildings stood vacant, blighted and deteriorating. In July of 2010, YIKES owners, Tracy Levesque and Mia Levesque, purchased the buildings and in the following year they underwent a complete green renovation. A goal was set of bringing the buildings to LEED Platinum status, the highest level of certification of this green building certification system.
YIKES is excited to be a part of the revitalization of the Girard Avenue commercial corridor in Fishtown. Since its inception in 1996, YIKES has been dedicated to sustainable and green business practices. The opportunity to build and occupy a LEED certified office is a dream come true for us.
