The Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority invites competitive proposals from developers to purchase and develop thirty six (36) properties located in the blocks of 6200 Osage Avenue and 6200 Pine Street in the Cobbs Creek Philadelphia. The site is bounded by Pine Street to the North, Addison Street to the South, 62nd Street to the East and Cobbs Creek Park to the West.  

PRA strongly encourages developers to rehabilitate the properties, while not excluding the option of demolition and new construction if that approach proves to be the most viable solution.  Because some of the PRA-owned properties abut owner-occupied units, developers should be prepared to make every effort to address safety issues and prevent work that would adversely affect private properties. Developer should also be respectful of the area’s challenged history and the trauma that adjacent residents may have experienced.

A pre-submission site visit will be held on November 28, 2016 at 10:00 AM at 6216 Osage Avenue.  Interested parties are urged to attend this visit. This is the only time entry will be permitted for interested developers. No individual requests for entry will be permitted. Proposals will be reviewed to determine the most responsive proposal in accordance with the evaluation/selection criteria.

All proposals must be submitted no later than December 21, 2016 at 3:00 PM. Applicants may upload submissions via our website, hand deliver or send submissions via mail to:
