Norris Square Ranks at Number 27 on Philly YIMBY’s First Anniversary Countdown

The 27th place in Philadelphia YIMBY’s First Anniversary Countdown, which aggregates the 31 most frequently listed article categories over the course of the past year, goes to Norris Square. The North Philadelphia neighborhood featured in at least 29 articles during the period.

Today we look at some of the most outstanding projects on the drawing boards within the district.
