Land for Community Uses

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 is accepting applications to buy land and responses to competitive sales and Requests for Proposals, the review of those documents may take longer than usual. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we respond to the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis.


Philadelphia’s neighborhoods are strengthened by amenities like playgrounds, senior centers, daycare, and other community amenities. Do you have a proposal for a community use for which public property could be used? The first step is to find out if the property you are interested in is publicly owned and available.
