Last month, Philadelphia YIMBY discussed new article categories that were introduced at the start of the year. Among those were categories that grouped new proposals by residential unit count, where we dedicated an article to each of the groups. However, at the time we also introduced a similar category tracking method, where we catalog buildings by square footage. Although this may sound like a similar measurement technique, the square footage categories are more broad as they also include non-residential developments. In today’s installment of our “category spotlight” series, we focus on projects that range from 100,000 to half a million square feet. This category is largely comprised of relatively large mid-and high-rise developments. Please note that since the category was introduced only at the start of the year, it currently excludes articles published prior to this year.
