Publications announce coverage series of Philadelphia’s vacant land

    What began with a City Paper cover story in March evolved over the months to become a seven-article series funded by J-Lab and brought to you by City Paper, PlanPhilly and Technically Philly.

    In its issue today, the paper devoted most of its coverage to a single topic: vacant land. The project highlights vacant land and blight in Philadelphia, covering topics like the Redevelopment Authority, the number of vacant properties in the city and how L&I handles them.

    NewsWorks partner PlanPhilly hosts the project’s landing page, which includes a map of vacant properties.
