How the zoning code affects developers and neighbors

    There’s been plenty of coverage about Philadelphia’s Zoning Code changes. We’ve learned how it will affect particular neighborhoods, variances and specific structures.

    The NewsWorks partner has a follow-up to a series it ran at the end of last year, in which the publication assumed the role of the developer and tried to change the use of a Northern Liberties property. All things considered, the process was fairly easy.
