An In-Depth Look at 488-Unit Mixed-Use Complex Planned at 700-30 North Delaware Avenue in Northern Liberties

Last month, Philly YIMBY visited the site of a half-million-square-foot, 488-unit mixed-use complex planned at 700-30 North Delaware Avenue on the Delaware River waterfront in Northern Liberties, North Philadelphia.
