Investment Overview
On behalf of ownership, Rittenhouse Realty Advisors extends to qualified investors the opportunity to acquire the fee simple interest in 1143-1147 North 3rd Street, a 5,472 ± SF site approved for (24) apartment units, (2) “Live Work” units and (8) parking spaces. As one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Philadelphia, Northern Liberties has established itself as the more mature, hip “older sister” to nearby Fishtown. The original Philadelphia “hipster” neighborhood, Northern Liberties has arrived and is now known as a “rich-ster” neighborhood. Residents of Northern Liberties enjoy easy access to Center City via the Spring Garden and Girard subway stops (Market-Frankford Line).

Strategically located just a block from the major roads of Girard Avenue and Second Street within Northern Liberties, this 5,472± SF development opportunity is one of the few remaining plots of land available in this high-density neighborhood. The site is two blocks from an ACME grocery market, The Schmidt’s Commons (TSC) bars, boutiques and restaurants, and the always popular Liberty Land’s Park. Northern Liberties is Philadelphia’s preferred residential neighborhood for young professionals. The demand for high-quality rental apartments in Northern Liberties is extremely strong. Occupancy in this sub-market is robust and typically in the 95%-100% range. In addition to a strong rental market, the Northern Liberties single family, townhouse and condominium residential markets are outstanding with many townhomes selling for well over one million dollars.

What started as an enclave for artists and designers is now a thriving area featuring million dollar townhouses and one of the most popular nightlife scenes in the city. 2nd Street is a hub of hip bars, restaurants, and boutique shopping. 1143–1147 North 3rd Street presents an outstanding opportunity to acquire a development site approved for 24 apartment units and 2 “Live Work” units with 8 parking spaces in Northern Liberties, one of Philadelphia’s most exciting neighborhoods.
