The Offering

Berkadia,​ as exclusive agent, is pleased to present the opportunity to acquire Northbank | South Parcel​ (“the Property” or “South Parcel”), a 2.26 acre shovel-ready development site within a master-planned community, situated along the Delaware River Waterfront in Philadelphia, PA. The Property is located just minutes from the heart of Fishtown, which was named “America’s Hottest New Neighborhood” by Forbes in 2018. Upon sale, the Property will be fully approved for a 390,905 SF development comprised of 289 apartments, 14,500 SF of retail, 241 covered parking spaces and a market-leading amenity package.

The Property is one critical component of a larger 25-acre master-planned community. Upon completion, the master development will emerge as a new, self-sustained neighborhood that includes 254 for-sale townhomes, 104 stacked condominiums, 539 multifamily rental units, nearly 25,000 SF of retail space, and a brand new waterfront trail. Site development for the project commenced earlier this year and vertical construction of the 358 for-sale units will begin this summer.

Transit-Oriented Development

With convenient access to over 2,500 miles of interstate, state and local highways, and multiple transit and rail lines via the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s (SEPTA) network, Northbank’s future residents will enjoy seamless connectivity throughout the Greater Philadelphia area.

Situated adjacent to Interstate 95 (I-95), a major freeway that runs North-South along the Delaware River, residents can quickly navigate the Philadelphia MSA. Phase four of the I-95 Underpass Improvement Project is currently underway and will feature noise barriers, multi-use paths for pedestrians, lighting, landscaping, plaza areas, public art and parking. This investment project will complement the Northbank development by providing ready access while alleviating future concerns regarding traffic congestion.

The robust transit network of bus routes, regional and local rail lines servicing this submarket creates easy commutes to Center City Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs. Local notable transit options include the Girard and Berks Ave stations of the Girard Trolley Line, Market-Frankford Train Line, and Frankford Loop bus route.

With the continued investment in the infrastructure, transit and transportation systems throughout Philadelphia, the city has witnessed tremendous development growth in the adjacent neighborhoods.

Formerly the epicenter of the region’s commercial shad fishing industry, Fishtown now harbors one of the most exciting mixes of culinary, artistic, and musical spots the region has to offer, making it one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Philadelphia and the United States.
