About Us
Our work, authorized by Pennsylvania State Charter under the Urban Redevelopment Law of 1945, focuses on planning and developing balanced mixed-use communities to create thriving, well-served neighborhoods. As the public government agency charged with the redevelopment of the City of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority provides the foundations that enable private investors to revitalize neighborhoods. We have been deeply involved in the development of the city since the Urban Redevelopment Law passed and we continue to work towards identifying new opportunities, while responding to changing economic conditions.
