SW Phila Affordable Housing Strategy
Updated: Apr 25
Long considered to be of the last affordable neighborhoods in the city, Southwest Philadelphia is now facing serious threats of displacement caused by outside developers as well as from the expansion of institutions within University City. The Southwest Community Development Corporation (SWCDC), a non-profit organization that assists low-income residents in the area with a variety of services, retained Urban Partners to prepare a Comprehensive Affordable Housing Strategy for SW Philadelphia. The main deliverables for this document are a data-driven analysis of the housing market and a set of pragmatic initiatives designed to slow the progression of displacement and preserve housing affordability in Southwest Philadelphia.
