Philadelphia YIMBY Looks at Upcoming Projects With 10 to 50 Residential Units

Philadelphia YIMBY continues its “category spotlight” series, which looks at some of the new article categories we introduced at the start of the year. In the third entry of this mini-series, we look at new residential developments that we have covered so far this year that feature anywhere between 10 to 49 residential units. In general, the category consists of medium-sized apartment buildings that rise anywhere from three to five stories and some townhouse complexes, although there are a few exceptions, such as a very notable one at the Freeman Auction House overbuild. For more details on this proposal, as well as a selection of several others, please scroll below.

In this second entry in our category spotlight series, we look at a few of the residential developments with unit counts ranging from 50 to 99. This category consists mostly of sizable mid-rise developments, as well as a few high-rise buildings that tend to fall withing the under-20-story range.
