Statement of Work Summary:

PHA is seeking development partners to build workforce homeownership housing on parcels in the Choice Neighborhood area.

In 2013, the Philadelphia Housing Authority ("PHA") received a $500,000 Choice Neighborhoods Initiative Planning Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development ("HUD") focused on the redevelopment of The Norman Blumberg Apartments. Under the grant, PHA spent two years working with residents and neighborhood stakeholders to develop a comprehensive transformation plan for the Norman Blumberg Apartments and the surrounding Sharswood/Blumberg Neighborhood. The plan calls for a mixed-income, mixed use neighborhood with 1,200 new or rehabbed units of housing and a revitalized commercial corridor along Ridge Avenue.
