The North Broad Street Renaissance

In partnership with community stakeholders, the North Broad Renaissance is looking to revitalize the community, create opportunities, and improve the economic power and overall quality of life along one of Philadelphia’s most prominent corridors – North Broad Street.

OUR PURPOSE

North Broad Renaissance

OUR PURPOSE

The North Broad Renaissance is a non-profit that will serve as a Special Service District (SSD) who’s primary role is to provide communication and information to city administrators and Council, neighborhood and community groups and others who are (or may) do business or development or other activities on North Broad, from City Hall to Germantown Avenue. In partnership with community stakeholders, we are looking to revitalize the community, create opportunity, and improve the economic power and overall quality of life along one of Philadelphia’s most prominent corridors – North Broad Street. Top priorities include:

  • Clean and safe corridors
  • Maintenance and landscaping
  • Marketing and communications
  • Street lighting

OUR IMPACT

OUR IMPACT

The ultimate goal for the North Broad Street corridor is community revitalization.

According to research, if they work well, neighborhood commercial corridors make an important contribution to community quality-of-life, especially in pedestrian and transit-dependent lower-income neighborhoods. As North Broad Street becomes a key area of development and revitalization, it’s critical that, collectively, we serve as partners where current and future stakeholders benefit from this revitalization. It’s no secret that this process can be challenging and can have its share of successes and failures, but we look forward to working with the community as we hold each other accountable for accomplishing this goal.

A clean and safe north broad

Maintenance & Landscaping

North Broad Street will be visibly more beautiful! The clean corridor will be complemented by attractive green space and a decrease in vacancies. The Design and Physical Improvement Committee will work with partners to improve green space along North Broad Street. Projects include beautifying and maintaining the 61 planters along North Broad Street, and transforming the island at North Broad Street, Ridge Avenue and Fairmount Avenue into a pleasant green space. It might also include turning the vacant lot at Broad and Lehigh (which is frequented by the homeless population) into a community garden that serves this underserved population.
