The City of Philadelphia and local business owners are trying to
breathe new life into this once thriving urban, commercial business
district. They're immediate goals are to get everyone talking about the
project (so it gains traction), and find a creative way to finance it.
More information and pictures can be found here.
"Tudor East Falls" was a 210 unit housing development that started construction in 1925 and was completed in 1931.
This Philadelphia community was designated as a National Historic
District in 2009 for its unique architecture, stone/wood facades, and
Tudor Revival windows. As you will read in this article, 2 other East Falls buildings are on their way towards receiving the same designation.
The neighborhood of East Falls (in the Northwest section of
Philadelphia) continues to develop and shine with new housing, retail
space, and new/updated recreation centers. It features tree lined
streets, two train stations, a number of bars/restaurants, small
grocers, lofty mansions, and renovated housing (that has helped increase
overall property values).
Stop in and visit this quaint, little neighborhood the next time you're in the area.
