Thank you for visiting the PHDC website. Please note that PHDC offices are closed as part of Philadelphia’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. While PHDC offices are closed we will not accept new Expressions of Interest (EOIs) to purchase publicly owned land. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we respond to the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis.
Do you own land and have a development idea for it? And would adjacent parcels owned by public agencies make that idea more feasible? If so, you may be able to purchase the public land outside of the competitive process. For PHDC to help you complete an assemblage, you must own 50 percent of the property to be developed. In addition, the public property you want to acquire must be part of the development. You will have to pay fair market value, as determined by an appraisal, for the property.
To explore whether we have properties that could help you develop an assemblage, you can review available properties on our property map.
