The North Broad Renaissance (NBR) – a non-profit that’s supporting revitalization efforts along North Broad Street – is released the first ever “State of North Broad” report. The report, which was completed in partnership with E-Consult, was released during the 2016 State of North Broad event on December 15, and highlights significant growth and redevelopment opportunities – including over $1 billion in development, and an expected population growth by more than 24.8 percent by 2021.
“The 2016 State of North Broad report will help us understand the opportunities and challenges along North Broad Street from a broad perspective,” stated Shalimar Thomas, Executive Director of the North Broad Renaissance. “It also helps us understand exactly what we need to do as a community to build on those opportunities and address those challenges.”
