Point Breeze Strategic Development Plan Philadelphia, PA

To take advantage of the opportunity to win stimulus-package dollars through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), the Redevelopment Authority of the City of Philadelphia (RDA) sought to identify a range of potential improvements that would spur residential and commercial development in the Point Breeze neighborhood. AthenianRazak was part of the team hired to make strategic recommendations. We surveyed the neighborhood, met with influential local residents, and recommended several strategic options. The options were grounded in our financial analysis of the costs and sources of funds for various development options.

The RDA won ARRA funding for the Point Breeze neighborhood and private developers to rebuild the community.
