Norman Blumberg Apartments I

Philadelphia PA

Blumberg Apartments Phase I consists of 57 affordable rental units situated in the Blumberg/Sharswood neighborhood in North Philadelphia. K&A provided comprehensive architectural services for the 57 townhouse and flat units in Phase I of a multi-phase redevelopment effort that is part of the HUD Choice Neighborhood Initiative (CNI). Blumberg Phase I also received funding from Pennsylvania Housing and Finance Agency (PHFA) through the 9 percent Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.

The Blumberg Apartments are 3-stories in height and constructed on vacant land and infill lots on both Jefferson Street and North 24th Street. The completed Phase I development provides a mix of one, two and three bedroom flat and townhouse units. Nine units are fully accessible for people with physical disabilities, and three additional units provide devices to assist hearing and visually-impaired residents.

A centrally located multi-purpose community space and management office is also integrated into the Phase I redevelopment. The project is designed to meet ENERGY STAR® and Enterprise Green Community standards.
