PHA Is Open for Business

Retail Space is Available at their Headquarters Building in North Philly

(PHILADELPHIA- September 24, 2019) – With its new headquarters building now anchoring the Sharswood neighborhood and hundreds of new homes under construction, the Philadelphia Housing Authority is taking the next step in shepherding the community’s resurgence. The agency has begun marketing storefront retail and office space at its 2013 Ridge Avenue site.

“Our message is we are open for business,” said PHA President and CEO Kelvin A. Jeremiah. “Families and seniors are moving back to Sharswood, and not just in PHA housing but in privately developed homes as well. We have a new high school, now in its second year and new streets and amenities, but the final component needed to complete the restoration of the neighborhood is business to serve all the new and existing residents.”

The gleaming five-story PHA headquarters building sits on a triangular site along Ridge Avenue between Jefferson and Master Streets and features a modern design with large glass windows. The ground level offers highly visible storefront retail space. There is also an Indigo bicycle sharing dock in front of the building, which is within walking distance of the Broad Street subway and other public transportation.

The first floor space features high ceilings with floor to ceiling windows and the opportunity to build out the space to suit a business’s specific needs. The site also has a built-in customer base with several hundred employees as well as clients and visitors coming to the building daily. The space is well-suited to a bank, café or retail.
About 4,000 square feet of carpeted office space with finished ceilings is also available.
