Meet Philadelphia’s Next Great Neighborhoods


As Philadelphia evolves and grows over time, disparate opinions on what should be built and where challenge the real estate development industry. While some neighborhoods support new construction, others fight change, and still others suffer from the lack of investment in housing, infrastructure, and basic services. 

At our 20th annual Builders Conference, we invited District Councilmembers to identify areas where investment is needed and wanted. The goal is to introduce attendees to new neighborhoods and attract residential/mixed-use developers to underserved parts of the city and jumpstart development activity.

Participating Councilmembers may highlight areas and specific parcels of public and private land, along with their vision for development. Representatives from the community organizations are also invited to describe the area and its attractions and why there is potential for these areas to become Philadelphia’s next great neighborhoods.

We planned the conference to be more social and interactive for its 20th anniversary, allowing guests to engage with City Council and community representatives and discuss neighborhood development in a positive and productive way. As always, it’s a time to connect with members and friends of the BIA.
