Philadelphia zoning change to boost redevelopment

Two members of the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania City Council are proposing changes to a new zoning classification that’s meant to encourage the redevelopment of former industrial sites into mixed-use residential projects.

The category, Industrial Residential Mixed-use (IRMX), was created during the overhaul of the zoning code that culminated when a new code was enacted in 2012. Because it’s a new category, it has yet to be mapped into many neighborhoods.

This article describes proposed Philadelphia zoning code changes to guide redevelopment of former industrial sites.
