How difficult is get a zoning change from single family (10A) to multi-family in Philly?

Asked by Mike, 19123 Tue Jan 27, 2009

I am looking at renovating a 4 bedroom house zoned 10A in Northern Liberties into a multi-family 2 apt (3 1) building. How difficult is it to get the zoning change and what steps need to be taken.

Go to licenses and inspections at city hall and they will walk you through the process. I can also refer zoning attorneys to you. Key issues have to do with size of rear yard etc. Zoning will tell you all the steps. You can also visit http://www.phila.gov and read up on getting the zoning changed.

Well, that is a very good question. Good new - bad news.

Good news: Here's the site to go to - http://www.philaplanning.org/

Bad news: It's something you would have to ask them.

Zoning changes can be a lengthy process. Just do your homework and make sure everything is done properly. Complications can stall things for a long time.
