This Philly neighborhood sits on a prime location rife with property opportunity. Bordering Center City, Northern Liberties is filled with abandoned properties and shuttered factories. In the past several years, property values in the area have experienced a boom. These value increases have naturally led to increased property demand in the area as a growing number of Philadelphians attempt to capitalize on the growth of the Northern Liberties neighborhood.

Philadelphia Real Estate Boom Is In the North

The past few months have accelerated more developing and exciting plans for the growing Philadelphia neighborhood. From homes to restaurants, the growth of Northern Liberties continues to exceed expectations. Recently, the neighborhood zoning committee approved new construction for eight additional single-family homes on 933-37 Front Street. Likewise, a new section of the Delaware River Trail segment recently opened in the neighborhood. This segment of the trail separates foot and bike traffic with a bi-directional bikeway and a ten-foot-wide pedestrian walkway.

As a potential bolster for the culture and community scene, plans for a potential jazz club and restaurant idea have been brought to the Northern Liberties Neighborhood Associations (NLNA). If approved, the dual-use establishment will have 150-seat availability and will feature an outdoor garden with some cool nooks and crannies scattered around the restaurant. The plans are still in the works for the work-in-progress proposal. Likewise, 850 North 4th Street is also finishing up their development of new houses constructed by Harman Deutsch. This development, along with other projects on New Market Street and Front & Poplar will continue to be developed over the next year.
