The mammoth building at 47th and Walnut streets that was once home to West Philadelphia High School will be converted into apartments.

A Brooklyn-based developer has secured a loan to turn the building into nearly 300 units.

The cost of the project is $24 million.

West Philadelphia High School opened in 1912. 99 years later, in 2011, students moved into a smaller, state of the art school a few blocks away.

Construction is set to start next year.
