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) whose 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.

North Broad Bid

Prior to the pandemic, the NBR worked towards creating a Business Improvement District because it realized that there is a real need for enhancing the municipal services that it receives and create equity along the corridor. That meant more public safety or police services, more street cleaning, more marketing to help the corridor realize its economic potential, and strategic business retention and business attraction to not only bring businesses to the corridor, but help them grow.

However, in light of the pandemic and its devastating impact, the NBR Board of Directors voted to maintain the organization’s structure as a Voluntary Special Service District and incorporate the data and research obtained through the BID process into the next five-year strategic plan.
