District at a Glance:
This district is situated to the north of Lehigh Ave. and west of Kensington Ave. Planning for large industrial areas is a key issue. The Hunting Park East industrial area is expected to remain industrial in character, while the Hunting Park West industrial area has a plan calling for a mix of new uses on land vacated by the Budd and Tasty Baking companies.
Top planning issues include:
Expanding and enhancing open space near Tacony Creek
Reuse of abandoned railways, and maintenance of traditional neighborhood commercial corridors at 22nd & Lehigh, Broad & Erie, and 5th & Lehigh
Rail stations at Broad & Glenwood and 22nd & Allegheny create opportunities for higher density, mixed-use development
It is important to support the work of community development organizations while also addressing the needs of under-represented neighborhoods.
